The seawall goes to France
In recent weeks I have heard vehemently from several persons, here and abroad, about the need for Guyana, in the midst of all the bad news, to be shouting about the positive stories that are around.
A friend in Barbados with Guyanese roots, on a recent visit here, was intrigued to learn about our vibrant Amerindian culture with its several tribes and languages. “Guyana should be pronouncing on these things outside,” he remarked. In a conversation with someone in Toronto, my reference to the rodeo at Lethem drew the comment: “A rodeo? In Guyana? Come on!” A Guyanese, many years in New York, saw our documentary Mabaruma Sojourn on YouTube and told me, “I never knew Guyana had places like that.”
