A wee walk at La Pastora

avatar
(Edited)

Hello, awesome Hivers!

Today is Wednesday, and a day to share a walk. I haven't felt like going for a walk today. I've had a sore throat since yesterday, and as several of my son's classmates have tested positive for Covid in the last few days, I've decided to take it easy just in case and stay at home. But I will share a very short walk from last Saturday.

My husband needed to see some locations for a movie he is working on in the preproduction. And we went to an area of the city I hadn't been to in years, La Pastora.

This is a very traditional Caracas neighborhood that preserves its colonial air in many of its streets. But I remembered it as quite neglected from the last time I went. So it was a pleasant surprise to find that at least some of the streets are very well maintained, the houses painted and in general everything is quite clean.

The first stop of the search was Callejón Sanabria. A closed street dating back to the 30s where the houses are built next to each other and have a park of the same name next to them.

From there, we continue to the streets near the Plaza de La Pastora. With its colonial houses painted in bright colors and with those windows that make me think about what life would have been like in the Caracas of yesteryear, full of houses with red roofs and big colonial windows.

We pass in front of the Church of La Divina Pastora. This temple was finished at the end of the 19th century and was built on the site of a temple also dedicated to the Virgin of La Divina Pastora, which was destroyed by the strong earthquake that took place in Caracas in 1812.

Then we walked through some other streets that could be good spots for the shooting. In one of them, there was a mural dedicated to the Venezuelan athlete Yulimar Rojas.

Yulimar Rojas is a Venezuelan athlete, Olympic triple jump champion, and current world record holder.

We walked a few streets closer to the square to take pictures of some of the facades.

The visit was short and quick, but I felt like going back to the area to explore it at a more leisurely pace.

5 years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://peakd.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem

Thank you! I only have a sore throat, and I don't feel sick. So I hope it will pass soon.

The place is beautiful and well preserved. The visit was quick because my husband had other places to visit, but I hope I can go back soon.

And my pleasure to join the #WednesdayWalk and share.

Enjoy the rest of your day! :)

Hello @coquicoin,
I hope you're feeling better, and it's a good decision to rest and take things easy for a while. Your body will appreciate the rest.
Nice photos of Caracas. Brightly painted buildings always remind me of the Caribbean. 😍

Thank you, Milly!

I feel better, just a slight sore in my throat.

The colored houses also remind me of the Caribbean too, of sea and sun, which by the way, I could do with these days.

Thank you for stopping by 🤗

For some reason I forgot about the covid until I read your son's friends got infected. I hope you are feeling better sis?

I love the places you've been to on your Saturday walk. It is quite vibrant with all the different colors of paints on the buildings.

Hi, sis!
Covid is making a comeback here, especially among the young. At my son's school, the number of cases is big. I still have a sore throat, and today I have a bit of a headache. Maybe it's time to get tested.
Have a good evening 🤗

I love coloured buildings like this, what a cracking wee walk Super Eli!

I have lost track of athletics but well done to your superstar, I had not heard of Yulimar before!

It was a pleasant surprise to see that the place is well maintained because it is in the centre of the city and not all of the centre is pleasant to walk around.

I don't follow the athletics either but I know who she is of course, and I remember that there was a lot of commotion with her participation in Tokyo. The girl is an athletics crack.

City centres can be funny, be here they are now mostly renovated so have lost much of their charm I think!
Well yes when you have a sports sensation then you tend to take notice !

What a colorful environment. Facades always attract my attention wherever I go and these are beautiful. An artistic place. Even the mural is colorful. 😊 Yulimar Rojas certainly deserves something like that. It was a pleasure to walk with you amiga! 🤗

Loving the vibe of these neighborhoods, Coqui❤️ The houses are gorgeous, a veritable feast for the eyes. Looks like you had an amazing walk. Must be fascinating to be looking at street scenes with a view to whether to not they would make a great backdrop or location for a filmset. Makes one take a fresh look at things - different perspectives. A lovely Wednesday Walk. I enjoyed taking a virtual meander with you after finding your post shared in Dreemport. !LUV !ALIVE !PIZZA

Thank you so much, Sam! 😊 It is a very traditional area of downtown and it was nice to walk around. And yes it is fun to see the places from the perspective of how they will look on the screen, it makes you see things you wouldn't normally see. I've learned something about that with my husband in all these years, hehe.
Thanks so much for stopping by 🤗 !LUV
