Suriname in a few pictures


I am just back from 3 weeks work in Paramaribo Suriname. It is a beautiful country and really worth considering for a vacation.  I like swimming and these are some places that are great for a swim.

The infinity pool at the former plantation “Bergendal “

But if you are not afraid to be eaten by a cayman or piranha, this is also a good option.

Later I received this picture of a cayman taken in the creek we were swimming…

I had some great food at Souposo in Paramaribo, Costerstreet 20. When visiting or returning later in the evening it is better to take a taxi.

The former plantation Frederiksdorp along the Commewijne river is now a beautiful place to stay.

Or the lodges at plantation “Bergendal” are very nice as well.

And he fell out of a high tree but his mommy was too lazy to come down and take him with her!

This is Jemmima, my little friend who accompanied me during all these challenging travels.

This is her father John, during one of his lectures on board of buoytender “Marwina”, just before we deployed a buoy. Is this now boys talk or buoys talk?

And these are some other funny guys I met at museum “Fort Zeelandia” in Paramaribo.
