life through the lens
My 6 month trip to South America in 1997 started in Caracas, Venezuela.
50 Bolivares, with Simon Bolivar on the front
In 2008 the Bolivar was replaced by the Bolivar Fuerte, which has now become known as the Bolivar

Hacha Falls, Canaima
After a half-day of walking and boating, we spent the night at a campsite - Angel Falls tour
El Sapo Falls
A slippery walk behind El Sapo Falls - it's a great feeling to walk behind a big waterfall. I'm amazed my camera still worked after this
Still on the Angel Falls tour, this one is apparently called Happy Falls
On the third day we finally have sight of Angel Falls, the World's highest waterfall - 979 metres
The uninterrupted drop that you see here is 807 metres - Angel Falls
It continues to a pool at the base of the waterfall - Angel Falls
