    I love your videos Dan!

    2 years ago I saw your video on Casa Vieja. So from the airport I told the taxi driver to take me there. The Bandeja Piasa was awesome!!! I even purchased one to go so that I can eat it for dinner the next day...

    Unfortunately a parked SUV that was left with the engine running slipped out of gear and rolled right into the restuarant. Tables, chairs and people were flying all over the place. Fortunately for me, I was sitting on the left side towards the wall and the SUV went right through the middle. My table was the only one that did not get knocked down. Everybody got up and left because their table, food got spilled to the floor. I was barracaded by the other over turned tables and chairs but I just ordered another Balashi and kept right on eating my Bandeja Paisa. One of the ownersJoel, liked my attitude so he drove me to my resort and gave me his number if I needed anything..

    Maybe I will go again in my May trip as I didn't have a chance to go last year...

    We'll have to try the Casa Vieja this year. Last year, I used Dan's video on Aruba's Rum Shops to tell my driver how to get to Rancho Josey's. We found it and spent a couple of hours talking Venezuelan rums with the locals.

    We had lunch there on Monday. You won't get very much English out of the staff, but you can point to the menu. The bandeja paisa was huge and lasted me the rest of the day. You can do lunch from 20 to 30 AFL plus drinks. The beer is cheap as well. It was fun and tasty. Afterward, stop at Chetos Rum Shop at Paradera 119 and tell Melena that you heard about it on the Internet. She was amazed we saw news of it online.
