Great site. This will definately be going on my favorites list. I am so happy to have found this site while planning my long awaited trip to Valencia Venezuela in Oct, 2005.
My name is Lexi St.Laurent and I am a 21 year old professional Salsera (salsa dancer) from Charlotte, N.C. I will be travelling to Valencia, Carabobo State, Venezuela and surrounding areas to visit a long-lost friend. (It's been 7 years since we've seen each other) This has been a dream of mine since I was about 15. I have some International travelling experience (U.K, Germany, Belgium, etc...lots of European countries) but this will be my first trip to South America. I am pretty comfortable with Spanish and very comfortable with Latin culture (from the salsa dancing thing.) I spend LOTS of time with the Latin American Community in Charlotte, NC organizing cultural events etc.
Anyhoo...thats me. I'm just so excited to finally be going to VZLA and I can't stop thinking about it. ANY and ALL advice is appreciate as I only have 3 months left until my trip.
