GuyaNEWS: The Transition From Guyana to America

As promised, here I am one more time, delivering one last message to your inbox.

GuyaNEWS: The June Guyanese Newsletter

Here we are, my friends, at the end of month #10. Ten months down and one to go. As I write this, I have just over four weeks before my experience in Guyana concludes.

GuyaNEWS: Flooding and a Funeral

This newsletter is a little different than the first eight that I’ve sent out over the course of my nearly ten months living in Guyana. For starters, this newsletter is late arriving to you. However, unlike my other newsletters, this update isn’t going to be a recap of the previous month I’ve just finished living out inContinue reading “GuyaNEWS: Flooding and a Funeral”

We, asContinue reading “GuyaNEWS: The February Guyanese Newsletter”

GuyaNEWS: The Guyanese January Newsletter

GuyaNEWS: The Guyanese January Newsletter It has been a very quiet (okay, silent) month on my blog. It would seem that after posting 31 posts in December I’ve just grown lazy here in the New Year, but these past few weeks have found me being anything but sluggish. Unlike in 2014, things seem to beContinue reading “GuyaNEWS: The Guyanese January Newsletter”
