Interesting, Vibrant town

Coming from French Guiana, Paramaribo is a breath of fresh air, traffic, busy streets, a huge variety of ethnic diversity, Roti restaurants, excellent Chinese, cheap DVD's - absolutely fantastic
- But I guess if you're coming from civilisation it may be a bit more of the same, but the city itself is a world heritage site, there is some fantastic architecture, the duty old fort, and some excellent history, the city has a mixture of dutch and american feels to it, but the variety of people on the streets is pretty amazing, the city also has a synagogue co-located with a Mosque, its got to be one of the only places in the world where you can see that
