    Yet, there are still quite a number of Guyanese who say that “Guyana is below sea level” when in fact they should say, “The coastland of Guyana is below sea level at high tide.”

    Thoughtful well written article, lovely video of schoolchildren singing and great videos of Roraima, Do we have info of Reverend Harley-Bryant who wrote “Song of Guyana’s Children?

    Mount Roraima is indeed a spectacular monolith and mountain! The time-lapse movie by Morten Rustad is specular and does much justice to the unique landscape and fauna of the table top mountain. I had flown several times to the Northern Rupunini over the years but never got to see Roraima from the plane as it was always covered by clouds. I hope one day to flight over Roraima to see the mountain in its full glory!

    By the way, the US computer-animated comedy-drama adventure film Up produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures features a house turned into a makeshift airship using thousands of helium balloons and flying away to Mount Roraima. In 2004, Pixar artists spent three days reaching Roraima from the Venezuelan site by airplane, by jeep, and by helicopter. They also spent three nights there painting and sketching, and encountering ants, mosquitoes, scorpions, frogs, and snakes. More information can be found here:

    Mount Roraima and the rest of Esequibo belongs to Venezuela

      If this were indeed the case, how come Venezuela recognises Guyanese sovereignty over 10% of Mount Roraima as demonstrated by a border stone erected by them on the mountain top?

      Check the link below to see a picture of the boarder stone:

      No, the mountain belongs to the original people of South America.

        Correct, Brother Man! This is true for the entire Western hemisphere.

      What about the 50 billion barrels of offshore oil?

      • Brother Man  On 03/15/2021 at 10:31 am

        You say 50 billion barrels. Dat’s the tip of the berg. I say all dat energy are the remains of billions of dinosaurs and other animal and plant life that flourished and died millions of years ago.

        And miles and miles of offshore sea north were once part of the continental landmass and teeming with life. Erosion over the eons has devoured miles and miles of the continent in all directions.

        Exclusivity belongs to no one.
