This was a colony built by Germans in Venezuela the architecture and the buildings are German. Pretty neat place to visit in tropical Venezuela, I have not had the chance to visit this place but know many people who have.

I know the country is a hodgepodge of racial groups, but for some reason everyone I've met from there was White. I'd imagine it could be a nice place for a vacation-- warm weather and lots of blonde frauleins walking around in places like this-- but alas I'm not keen on being shaken down by Chavez's boys at the airport going both ways, assuming I don't get thrown in jail for the offense of being American and poor.
