  • DIY daytrip to 2 villages on Suriname...

    DOMBURG and LAARWIJK, surrounded by lush rainforest and so quiet that you hear and see the beautiful birds and in the afternoon the howler monkeys. Domburg has miles and miles of walking routes along and through the rainforest. But is not only for the animals you should go there. Surinamians know better than foreigners that the delicious Javan and...

    Similar design, different city, different layout. Bet this postcard that one guy copied the other, the picture on top is from the older city.

It actually belongs in Guyana, got mixed up because I had Suriname and Guyana pictures mixed together and this was not picked up until I began my Guyana page. It could be removed from this page if anyone objects.

    All of the following pictures will give you a flavour of the older kinds of buildings and their rather similar architecture, which maximizes floor space.{p}So often in these older settled countries, the high ground with the view is where you often find the worst living circumstances.
