... then, my message comes across as saying don't travel there because we will ruin it. I think more to the point of my message is, do travel there and experience it, but don't try to change it. If you are a creature comforts kind of traveler, then Suriname is probably not the best place for you.

... up to a small village for some local snacks - fried plantain, doughnut-shaped dough balls & spring rolls. Irish Paul unable to hear the instructions of a single serving each proceeded to have his own little feast. We had half an hour in the village before re-boarding our boat as the sun was setting. We were all disappointed we had seen no dolphins. Then suddenly the Captain of the boat screamed 'Dolphins ahead!'. Very excitedly we all ran to the front of ...
