Galipán in El Avila

The first thing on the agenda once we arrived in Caracas was food. We flew in Friday night and lunch Saturday was already programmed to be had up in Galipán in El Avila.

Up the mountain we went to La Posada de Teresa.

Which received us with open doors.

And lots of food. Tostones con queso blanco rayado.

Queso blanco frito.

Yuca frita (because we like our fried foods).

Ensalada de aguacate y palmito.

Arroz y tajadas.

Lomito en salsa de mostaza, hongos y queso azul.

Pollo a la Teresa.

Parrilla de Lomito.

Y pollo a la Suiza.

They had pigs, because, why not?




Antiques.



And over all a very quaint, cozy place.



With live music!

And a great view.

A great meal, Gracias Teresa!

On our way down we stop to contemplate the view of the city and take some pictures.
This, my friends, is Caracas as seen from the top of El Avila.








Now tell me the truth, if you were originally from a place like this, wouldn’t you want to go back home too?
