    I am very proud of Guyana the land of my birth. It is nice to see many pictures posted. Many people from different countries,
    Will have an idea what Guyana looks like. Guyana is a land of many rivers and lakes, beautiful trees, flowers and fruits.
    Temperature, lovely sunshine and rain.wild animals that roam in the forest.The people of Guyana is friendly ready to welcome anyone with open arms. Guyanese are great cooks,
    Food is always delicious. After a hearty meal many of the locals will have a nap…Guyana is a beautiful and unique
    Country.. long live Guyana
