Finally have some wifi to connect with you all. Arrived in Guyana at about 6:30 this morning to some pouring rain! No worries though because the whole day was a nice cool temperature (don’t even want to know what it’ll be like sans rain). They’re fixing the gates at the airport so we had to deplane in the rain, but wow, what a warm welcome we got from the Peace Corps Guyana staff when we left the airport. They had a big sign and were screaming and clapping for us. Can’t wait to be a part of this amazing group.
They gave us a quick snack before we started our travels for the day of Channa (spicy chickpeas) and this really good potato ball thing, and we were on our way! Bus ride, ferry ride (where we got some really nice views of islands in the Essequibo River) and another bus ride later we arrived at our destination, a resort for the next 4 days for a mini orientation before we move in with our host family for training. Took a quick nap, had a nice dinner and going to crash before a long day ahead tomorrow!
