The buses in Venezuela are much too cold (the night buses). I had been warned about it but could not imagine how cold it actually was. For my first bus journey in Venezuela, with the night bus between Caracas and Ciudad Bolivar, I was dressed in long trousers, a warm sweater, socks in the sandals and a scarf. I very soon realised this was not enough and I was freezing cold (not just a little) during the whole journey. Many other people(who were prepered) had both jackets and blankets.
I can't understand why they have such cold air-condition when it becomes unpleasant for the passengers.
