  8. Guyana Fence Post Transporting

    At a self help to build parts of a fence, I was surprised to find an old man, well over 70 years old helping out with the work.   Since they had no bulls to pull the cart, the men decided that the best thing to do would be to push the cart themselves.

  9. Guyana Hanging in There

  10. Guyana Black Creek Bathing?

    Trees roots in Guyana, dye the water brown and many Amerindians of Guyana bathe and do laundry in this water. It is a strange experience to be in river water and barely able to see your own hand underneath it.  The first thoughts of volunteers-- Are there Piranhas or water snakes?
