Caracas: Day 1

Today was our big travel day: LAX-MSY-CCS.  We had a pause in New Orleans to refuel the jet, acquire more food for the passengers and swap out the crew.

Having debarked, we were each greeted with a broad smile and firm handshake by none other than Dr. Abreu himself:

"Bienvenidos a Venezuela!"- Dr. José Antonio Abreu greets violist Meredith Snow

Talk about classy!  To see him so happily greeting us all was quite an inspiration.

Having completed our customs obligations, we piled onto buses and followed our police escort to the hotel.  After eating dinner, we are now ready to rest up and play our first concert tomorrow: Mahler’s 9th.
