La Guaira is more like the other ports' we visited, with streets scarcely as wide as an alley in Algona. The Latins Like Color. In all of these ports I rioted that the Latins have little conception of architectural or geometric design in laying out their towns, they certainly do have a highly developed sense of color.

The natives are all dark-skinned, most being descended from slaves brought from Africa. ' The usual tourist procedure, when reaching port, isi to hire a car with a native driver (who sneaks poor English) for a tour of the town. When the driver is dismissed one spends hours walking about in the narrow streets. Stops are made at the shops, which are filled with a.cross between junk and remarkable values. Everyone Has Cameras. Everyone carries a camera. The natives, "wise" to tourists, bedeck themselves in typical costumes and collect 10c for allowing - - .--.hots. i Children beg at every They even ask for clgarets. o.t every port, adults are out with dolls in costume, native baskets, and trinkets for sale to unwary tourists. .
