My study gave me the oppurtunity to work in Surinam for 6 months.
It was a most wonderfull experience and adventure.
The beauty of this country has a big variety:
-In the city you can see Dutch colonial architecture,
-In the wild interior you can really experience the Amazone riddled with beautiful rivers, waterfalls and wildlife.
-At the coast you can see giant sea turtles come ashore to nest.
And there is much more.
The Surinam people are very friendly. There's a big ethnic diversity: Creole, Hindustan, Indian, White, Chinese and Indonesian people live together in harmony (wich makes a very good Surinam cuisine!!!)
I would recommand any traveller to visit!

-Day4: We sailed back and made stops at the Saramaccan villages Djumu, Kumalu and Pikin Slee. Here we visited the local Saramaccans, their schools and houses
-Day5: We relaxed whole day at our holiday island Isadou
