Block 22

The village is situated around and on these sandy hills

Block 22 is situated in Wismar, Linden and although the village has approximately 1,500 residents, not many Guyanese have heard of it. Block 22, if not famous for anything else, is surely famous for its blue water lake that attracts locals and foreigners alike.

To get to the village, one crosses the Wismar Bridge and takes a winding road that seems to run on for a long time. The World Beyond Georgetown got there after receiving three different directions from three different men, to hear ind oldies belting from one house to the next.

Dark clouds hung overhead but this didn’t diminish the jollity. Almost everyone was out; some persons at work, some still mellowing in their time off and the children up and down the hills on bicycles…..
