The Orinoco

Southern Venezuela

 
 
From the plains, we descended to the Orinoco river valley. This is the only bridge which crosses the river.
Unfortunately bicycles are not permitted to cross this bridge. The military arranged a lift across for us in the back of a pick-up owned by a friendly family.
Jeremy's bike crossing the Orinoco. Itís a shame we couldnít ride them across.
We arrived in Cuidad Bolivar as the sun was setting. This is the view of the Orinoco River and the bridge from the City. Very dramatic with these stormy skies. As we were checking into a hotel it started pouring with rain and didnít stop for at least 12 hours. We were pleased we weren't cycling through it.
