Chiki is my parents house in Caracas, this is where I spend most of my time when I go home. Here she is

Surrounded by her Trinitarias, which are usually in full bloom

And framed by El Avila the majestic mountain which protects the valley of Caracas

Isn’t she beautiful?

And some of the nearby neighborhoods are also lovely

One of the best parts of El Avila is El Pico Oriental
which can be seen from most places in the city

Of course, this being a poverty ridden country, Chiki’s neighborhood is surrounded by a very picturesque and dangerous Barrio, with tons of ranchos, but I will spare you of that. After all I do want you to visit, right? ; )
