... hungry at the time.

There were hundreds of white chairs set up in front of the stage. Since we had already "seen" everything, we decided to take a seat and just watch things unfold. At first, there was Indian music playing over the very, very large speakers. It was so loud that the sound literally vibrated our ribs.

Today was a busy day, with lots of visits to spectacular waterfalls. We began the day, however, with a "panorama walk" from Rock View Lodge.

The mouth of the river is nearly one mile wide. The river and the Atlantic Ocean at this point are brown due to all of the silt carried by the Demerara River and all of the other rivers between the ...

... with one of the money changers patrolling the border. After more than an hour all formalities had been completed, into the truck documentation. We boarded the ferry by foot with the dozens of locals. It was only a short journey across to the other side, maybe 30 mins. Many people, as usual, were fascinated by our truck. Onboard I spoke with an older gentleman who worked for the UN in the Guianas & NY. Sounded like a great job flying all over the ...
