Into the heartland, El Corazon

What a view! This stained glass window formed one entire wall of the Caracas airport.
Welcome to Ciudad Guayana. From here, we would drive south to Bolivar state and the little village of Las Claritas which would be our base for the next 5 nights while we birded in Canaima National Park, the Lost World.
Angel Fall is the tallest waterfall in the world, flowing from the top of Auyantepui, the largest tepuy in the Lost World. We didn't actually get to see it, lacking a helicopter or the several days it would take to travel there, but this large mural was on the airport wall in Puerto Ordaz.
