The Venezuelan Llanos (Plains) comprehend more than 300,000 km˛ of vast and beautiful land. It is characterized by a permanent and radical contrast between the rainy season and the dry season. An endless flooded plain is transformed in a barren and cracked soil. It is populated by an enormous variety and quantity of species of animals admirably adapted to this environment. All distribute in the savannahs and forests or in certain occasions concentrating around the areas where water is found. A true Paradise for all nature lovers, it is the home of tough rough men who are proverbial horse riders, dedicated to the labors of extensive stockbreeding performed through the “llaneras labors”, invariably accompanied by their songs and tapping to the rhythm of the harp, cuatro and maracas.
