Where is Guyana?

Guyana is a small English -speaking country here on the north-east edge of South America. It is considered as a part of the Caribbean with which it has many ties such as language, culture, economy and cricket.

The climate is tropical being a fairly steady 28 degrees Celsius the year around. There are two rainy seasons.

Most of the population lives on the coastal plain, at or below sea level. The interior is largely undeveloped rain forest and savannah.

The population is largely of African and East Indian origin with substantial number now of mixed ancestry.

There is a small but significant number of Amerindians, some Chinese and a few of other races.

Religion is important to most Guyanese. About half the population is Christian, the rest is mainly Hindu or Muslim with a significant number of Baha'is.

The attractions of Guyana include her people and the unspoilt natural wonders of the country such as Kaieteur - a magnificant watefall (that is my son standing in front of it).

This place is absolutely beautiful! I am interested in this place because this is where my employer is originally from. I hope to visit here some day. I can see why he loves it so much.
