Fancy a Metro Ride from Plaza Las Americas to Los Magallanes?

According to Google – you can go right ahead! GoogleMaps displays a dozen Caracas Metro stations that don’t exist yet. You can expect tourists relying on the service to show up for rides from stations that are years from completion, some on lines that haven’t even been started yet. 

How does something like this happen?!
