We traveled all night by bus to Caracas. I was excited. We arrived at 6: 00 am. It was Saturday and during the weekend people would travel to visit their family, because of this, there were many people at the Bus Terminal. My aunt’s husband picked us up from there.
My first experiences in Caracas
In the evening, we went for a walk and ate ice cream on The Boulevard. There were a lot of stores which sold very nice clothes and my aunt told me we will come back another day to buy something nice for me.I was really happy. Many people were enjoying and sharing with their families.
The next day we got up late, we had breakfast and, in the afternoon, we went to the zoo. There were many animals that I had never seen before, like Tigers, lions and different kinds of snakes. I'm afraid of snakes, so I did not spend too much time looking at them. I went to see the monkeys and the different kinds of birds.
In the evening, I helped my aunt with the dinner. We prepared everything for the next day. She has a son and a daughter about my age, they went to high school, I also had to go to high school but in the evenings because I wanted to work and earn some money to help my mom. When my dad died, she moved in with my grandmother, who was alone. They were trying to look after a farm that my grandfather had left but, It was a very hard job for two women.
The next day everyone left and I was alone in the house, I felt so lonely and sad, I missed my mom, my grandmother, and my sisters and brother a lot. I thought that I would not be able to stay in Caracas very long without my family. But, I had a dream. I wanted to study at the university and I knew I couldn’t do that in Barinas because there is no university there.
The time passed very quickly and I got used to the new activities. However, I would always go to visit my family when I was on vacation.
Hope to inspire you in someway
If you think something is possible it is, all you need is to listen to your heart and take action.
