Being in Suriname is like taking a walk through the tropical rainforest portion of your local botanical conservatory. I'm seeing plants all over the place here that were completely exotic, and unrealistically large when I first saw them at the Milwaukee "3 Domes" facility back in Wisconsin where I grew up. Next to me right now is a lively burbling stream and coconut trees, with unusual colored butterflies flitting about.
So yes, I made it to Suriname, I am in Paramaribo, and just finished breakfast. I'll be wandering around the city today and see what photographs I can find.
I am staying at the "Guesthouse Twenty4" which is a pleasant little hostel. More later. :)
