Landscaping around Caracas is superb. I think Venezuela's highways are among the best in Latin America together with Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.

Cool!

There are gum trees on the road between Muir Woods, and US101 in San Francisco.

The name of these birds in Spanish is Pavo Real. I found the scientific name: Pavo cristatus. In English is: Indian Peafowl. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Peafowl

Two years later, but here's the answer, sometimes they open the highway and put the barriers later.

I guess this avenue in Caracas could be considered an Expressway too:

Avenida Libertador

And now, some signage pictures:

Normally, it would look like this:
In Portuguesa State


Some states use different signage, like in Carabobo, my favourite:

By Guaro!



By @®Venezuela 2007 user from Panoramio

And in Zulia State:
