Over, Around, and Beside Angel Falls

My husband and I visited my parents in Venezuela in 1965. Dad was on loan to a Venezuelan steel company and as he and my step-mother lived in Caracas and the plant was in Puerto Ordaz, they had access to a small plane. I don't remember the make (think it was a Cessna) but there was room for the pilot and 3 more- two front and two back seats.

Bill and I spent an incredible day flying over the Canaima Falls- source of hydroelectric power- and then on to a fly over, around, and beside Angel Falls. We tipped our wings at Jungle Rudy's and headed toward the Falls. Unforgettable, breathtaking, and in today's overused lingo- Awesome!
