Here is my Guyana edition of “Markets Around the World”.
This May, Jonathan Machado and I had the pleasure of working in Guyana, South America. Neither one of us had ever been to this unique country located just north of Brazil and east of Venezuela. The most interesting part of this experience was immersing myself within the heterogeneous, mixed demographics. The ethnic groups are Indian, African, European, Chinese, and the Indigenous. The two largest are the Indo-Guyanese (from India) and Afro-Guyanese (from Africa). So, you get to see beautiful Indian architecture and dance to Caribbean rhythms all in one place. We got to eat Creole and Curry dishes, share laughs with our new friends Ryan and Jermaine, and of course document the entire trip. You can visit Jonathan’s photoblog to view his lovely stills from our travels. The video we worked on will be up soon as well. Enjoy!
