Venezuela in 1830-1835 (updated)

If you want to take a look at what Venezuela was almost 200 years ago, at least in the eyes of an Englishman, you can google and download for free "Reminiscences of South America, from two and a half years' residence in Venezuela" by John Hawkshaw.

It's fun to read specially chapter X and XII. Pages 168-172, 218-219, 222-223 are particularly interesting.

This was Caracas back then
