  7. 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?  

  8. Guyana Stop Child Labour

    June 12th-- World Day Against Child Labour March was organized by Peace Corps volunteers in conjunction with NGO Educare. Guyanese children all over Bartica marched in their village to exclaim the importance of education and brought the awareness of Child Labour to the forefront to their country. This March was published in the Guyanese newspaper. 

  9. Guyana Phagwah

    A boy on his way home after full day of Phagwah--the Hindu festival of colors.  This day started off with a religious service at the local Mandir where everyone wears white and receives their first of powder thrown at them. The Mandir group then proceeds down the road to fellow Mandir members houses, beating drums and cymbals and singing. Once the group arrives to the house more singing and music is played and food and drink are received.
