when you're absolute beginners it's a panoramic view, from her majesty mount zion and the kingdom is for you, uh-huh
after i returned from visiting angel falls and other pretty places in canaima i planned to go south to santa elena and climb mount roraima. i went to the bus station one lunchtime to get tickets for the night bus, only to be told they were sold out and i should return the next day. i did, at 9am the next morning, to be told the same thing: no more tickets - come back tomorrow. so i returned at 7am the following morning, waited in line for about an hour, before finally leaving that night. when i arrived in santa elena the next morning i was told that i would have to wait a couple more nights for the next group departure to roraima. to be honest i found all of the waiting and the delays a little frustrating, like someone was telling me i should not climb that mountain. as it happened, i was just being told to wait, and it was great advice. the weather was absolutely perfect for the full 6 days. given that it was during the rainy season i was prepared for the worst, but it only rained for about an hour each day, and the rest of the time the sun was out. i learned from speaking to returning groups that the weather before was not so great, too many clouds and too much rain. i waited 23 months after i started travelling and a week longer than i had planned... and it was totally worth it.
