Crossing No.1:

Another crossing of Orinoco.
Waiting for a «chalana», as a rule, is not long – 20-30 minutes.

Line for crossing: left bank – right bank.
Flat landscapes of the state Apure.

Crossing No.2:

Bridges in the state Apure are evidently not enough. They are being built for years, rusty poles sticking out of the water are evidence to it. Crossing over Cinaruco.

Waiting for a ferry is smoothed over by local scenes, flora and fauna.

Sticker on the bus: «If God is with me – then who is against me?»

The state Apure – is an agricultural state, its all life is concentrated along the river banks.

Sunday morning of an anonymous village at the river: dominoes, which enjoys equal popularity in Venezuela as baseball.

Police inspection.
