"The Amazonian jungle in Europe" Cayenne by carolerica

Cayenne Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 36 photos

Being in Guyana is simply incredible: you are in France, in Europe, and yet, in the Amazonian jungle!!! The idea is crazy but it is true...
Okay, okay, technicaly it is true, but in reality, Guyana is not exactly like the "metropole" (an other way to say main-land France), things are done at a slower pace, shops closes from lunch-time to 4:00pm (too hot), markets sells the local production (that's normal, huh! but the local producation means tropical vegetable and fruits, in strange shapes and color, and smells!!!!), it is the same "hour" all year round (no saving day-light hour!), there is a dry and a wet season, and one or the border is with brazil!!!

I have just returned from a 2 weeks visit to an old school friend of mine how moved there a couple of years ago. And it was Carnal time! a BIG thing in Guyana!

More in a few days!
