Sukhram's: Great hospitality
A hardware store on the forecourt of a filling station.
What to buy: David's padlock having broken in Paramaribo, he was in desperate need of a new one. Knowing that we may not have the opportunity at a later stage, we felt our luck was in.
What to pay: Not having had a chance to change any money yet, having just been in the country an hour or so, we offered the sales lady US$ for the padlock. She did not know how to work this out in the local currency, so she refused to accept any payment for the lock. Even when Paul, our Guyanese guide, came with the correct money in lcaol currency, would she accept payment for it! Such kindness from a complete stranger!
This is a book I would recommend to anyone who is looking for adventure. I enjoyed it and could identify with some of the things.
When the Singing Stops
• The journey that changes her life...
A young Australian woman leaves Sydney for a new world ... Guyana, South America.
Captivated by Guyana's wild, unspoilt beauty, Madison Wright joins the native Amerindians struggling to preserve their culture against corporate exploitation. But her new-found commitment soon plunges Madison into a mire of murder, drug smuggling and political corruption. And finally, an unexpected love that pits her heart against her beliefs.
• From Sydney's sparkling harbour to the lush rainforests of South America, When the Singing Stops is a triumph of storytelling.
