[ 00:54 friday 18 june – haggerston road ]
i’ve uploaded 26 photos from caracas taken on the last day of 2009 and the first day of 2010. as well as being venezuela’s capital city, caracas is also reputed to have the highest homicide rate per capita of any city in the world, predominantly gun related. it’s not a beautiful city. actually it’s about the ugliest city i’ve encountered anywhere in south america. all spanish colonial structures from the seventeenth and eighteenth century have been destroyed. even nineteenth century buildings are rare. most of the architecture is from the sixties and seventies. not much of it is any good.
clicking any of the four photos below will open a slideshow of the whole set. if you’re interested i wrote more about my experiences in caracas here.
