Exploring Guyana – The Land of Many Waters

Where in the world can you find a river 630 miles (1010 km) long with an estuary 20 miles wide and containing approx 365 islands? Guyana – The Land of Many Waters in South America! The description refers to the majestic Essequibo river. Guyana is the perfect destination for eco-tourism. It is a wonderful mixture of people, places and food. I have many memories of this beautiful land. As children in Guyana you were taught from very early the true meaning of patriotism. There were very few national songs that were not sung in the schools each week – and there were several of these songs! To underscore the richness of this unspoilt land, Venezuela continues to try to lay claim to a significant part of Guyana. Here are a few old but very beautiful videos giving a peek into this lovely land. Enjoy!
