These pictures were taken by my late Dad, Aaron Rachovich (Rachowitz), during my Parents' trip to Venezuela, Colombia and Trinidad & Tobago in 1999. Numerous offshore oil wells and pumps located in Lake Maracaibo, are seen in the remote background. In addition, please see a picture of onshore pump jack in the Maracaibo Basin, also taken by my Dad.
