Saturday 20th September we arrive at our destination, Paramaribo the capital of Surinam a UNESCO World Heritage site. A very different place from Guyana, more industrial along the river banks and still recovering from the civil war which ended in the 80’s. We enjoyed our time here, the people we met were very pleasant, the mix of cultures, Dutch, Chinese, Vietnamese, Amerindian, East Indian, the architecture reflecting these mixes. I am glad we made the trip.
The beautiful wooden cathedral Serious Rum tasting with Claude & Fred, Magic Swan.
