a glimpse at where I work

Here is a quick video of some of the staff and trainees at the place I work, Open Doors Centre. Please don't judge my video making skills, ha ha. Enjoy!

Let's go fly a kite...

So for Easter here in Guyana everyone flies a kite:

Cute Jennie :)

Biggest kite I've ever seen!

Awesome Easter outfits

Not very delicious shaved ice

Tons of people and kites at the sea wall. I was afraid to walk around with so many strings threatening to behead me!

Next year I'll have to buy myself a kite and join in the fun!

Saying hello to Station Street

Station Street, my new home

If you look at my last post you can see how very different my new street is. I guess this is what happens when you live in the 'big city'

My street has a lot of rum shops and beer gardens.

My new bridge to cross (it hasn't flooded so far!)

Almost there...

This is it! My new apartment :)

Saying goodbye to Samru Dam

I am officially a Peace Corps Volunteer as of today! We had our swearing in ceremony this morning and it is a great relief to be done with training. So as a transition I figured I would say my goodbyes to the place I've been living for the last two months.

Good bye dog (that has no name that I know of but I lovingly named ralph)

Good bye bridge that likes to go under water when it rains :)

Good bye Oriane's pink house

Good bye pink bridge that meant we were almost home!

Good bye very tempting sign for rat hunters (almost quit the Peace Corps for this)

Anyone else see what's wrong?

Good bye training center!!!!!!!!!!!
And finally, good bye our mascot Eloise!

Tons of winding (way of dancing)

Someone left their shoes...
