  • We were in Guyana during the social movement. We went to cocoa on a Sunday morning. We saw a village dynamic, built from nothing in 1976 by refugees from Laos, greeted by a hostile to Rochambeau event and providing in vegetables and fruits these same Guyanese a few months later. A black dot: misuse, from what I could understand, of pesticides to push all these products. See: crafts Hmong, fruits and vegetables, restaurants in the market, the Museum the blue glider and its incredible owner and his tour so exciting, the Church.

  • Second time j going. The path to get there offers some interesting points of view. On-site Sunday there is a market with Asian specialties. Not bad but not surprising for someone who has the habit of eating Asian. A little d craft hmong, some fruits, flowers, and local juice. A museum that I was not see, a bakery, a snack bar at the entrance, and a restaurant at the bottom of the village with a beautiful view. Nice view also from the Church. The inhabitants are rather nice, noted that during the week it must all be in the fields. So nothing d extraordinary, but nice anyway d go eat.
