  • Grasshopper

    Kaieteur National Park Things to Do

    This four-inch long colourful grasshopper took an instant liking to me and decided to climb up my trouser leg! All the photographers were very pleased, as his colouring showed much better against the dark background of my trousers, than the sandy coloured ground!

    Orinduik Off The Beaten Path

    Another amusing sight at Mahdia, was the lorry delivering fuel. He was sitting in his cab with the engine idling, and his exhaust was blowing smoke rings!

  • Mahdia

    Orinduik Off The Beaten Path

    From Orinduik we flew to a small landing strip in a place called Mahdia. The sole purpose of our visit here was to refuel the plane. We were absolutely amazed at how it was done - the pilot climbed up on the wing, and the ground staff handed him buckets with aviation fuel for him to pour through a large funnel into the tank. Great!
