About meEdit

Hi! My name is Paolo Costa, I am a Mechanichal Engineer and Project Management Specialist from UCV and UCAB , living and working in Caracas, Venezuela. My main contribution to the Wiki projects is photography. I like photographing places around the world, I love nature scenery and animals, but I also enjoy taking pictures of architecture and city landscapes. One of my favorite places on earth is "La Gran Sabana", a 10.000 square kms natural region located in Bolivar State, South East Venezuela. You may find here, in Spanish, the article I wrote about Gran Sabana, where I also placed many of my pictures. If you have any questions, or want to contact me, please write on my discussion page here.

This is me, on a cold december morning, on top of Mt. Roraima, in Venezuela, 2800 mts above sea level. Kukenan tepui is on the background.
