Hello, ladies and gentlemen!
Today I'll be talking about some worthwhile Instagram accounts to follow from Venezuela, more specifically, Caracas.
Well, it's a place not many people are going to go. Due to the political situation, crime rates are extremely high, inflation makes it a headache to buy anything and protests make it difficult to get around. Venezuelans are fleeing the country en-masse, and many airlines have stopped flying to the country altogether.
It's a shame. Both for Venezuelans, and for tourists wanting to explore the country.
In many ways, Caracas would be the perfect city for a Latin American enthusiast like myself. It's got a sizeable population, it's less than an hour away from the beach, it has (well, had...) a vibrant nightlife scene and is chalked full of gorgeous women.
Although I managed to visit before things got really bad, there was still an eerie, depressing vibe to the metropolis - I got the sense that the city was a mere shell of what it once was. Even so, I was impressed by the architecture, epic, sprawling avenues and geography of the place - in another life, perhaps the city would have been a decent fit for me, and I'd live out my days on a leafy boulevard, sipping coffee on a balcony while keeping an eye out for macaws.
With Caracas now being a no-go zone for tourists, the only way to experience it safely is through photos. Fortunately for us, there are a number of talented photographers that capture the vibe and atmosphere of the capital.
Here are a few of them.
