I am considering a move to Caracas in the near future. I would be living in Altamira area. Any advice or tips - both positive and negative, would be welcome. Thank you
sv3nsk replied most recently with:
Altamira is by far to live in caracas, you have subway nearby, is close to great malls and is in the "safe" part of caracas, its still dangerous but not so bad.

People are trying to leave Caracas, why move there? I have a lot of family trying to leave because of everything going on, they can't even find food to eat!

Any chances they would even let a ex felon enter the country or stay and apply for permanent residence? What loopholes or alternative options would there be for someone who just wants out of the US.?

antemily2 commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Porlamar, Venezuela
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
I've lived and traveled many places and have always gone with the attitude to not expect things to be the same or even like where I came from. However, if you are going to live in a country that by many is considered a 3rd world country, be some research or go ahead and have a visit and a 'look-see' as to what to expect and be honest with what you are capable of being able to live with..or without.
