Guyana Tourism: A Weekend at Splashmins Hotel and Resort – Pride News

An Enjoyable And Unexpectedly-Memorable Experience In One Of Guyana’s Tropical Forests

By Michael Van Cooten – Publisher/Editor

In these times of companies apparently maximising profits at the expense of customer satisfaction, when was the last time — if ever — you were completely bowled-over, by receiving much more value than was advertised?

My answer: two weekends ago.

From the afternoon of Friday, April 5 until Sunday, April 7, my beautiful, intelligent — and sexy — wife, Donna, and I, partook in the “Weekend Getaway” package, offered by Splashmins Hotel and Resort, in Guyana.

We had a pleasantly-fulfilling, enjoyable and memorable experience that far outstripped the benefits advertised by the hotel/resort — which was unexpected and surprising for me, even though we were foretold.

A few weeks ago, my wife’s lifelong best friend, Caesarine, had suggested — based on the fantastic time her son had told her he had, on his honeymoon, at the hotel/resort’s “Weekend Getaway” — that we should check it out.

Honestly, I trust Caesarine’s judgement, but remember, this was a second-hand recommendation she gave us, so I was a bit sceptical, since I normally set the bar high, when it comes to customer service and satisfaction.

Oh boy, did Splashmins blow my skepticism out of the water (pun intended).

The best of everything: Guyana 1945-1985 – Nostalgia 16 – By Godfrey Chin

Godfrey Chin -“Nostalgias”

January 28. 2007 – Stabroek News – Nostalgia 16 – By Godfrey Chin

In F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, one of the pastimes of the indulgent rich was prolonged conversation on “The Best of Everything and Anything.” Of course this was possible because in the thirties there was no television – the nemesis of banter and conversation between family and friends.

In subsequent years, the Best of Everything was extended by newspapers and magazines to annual polls on Jazz, restaurants, the worst dressed, the rich and famous, MVPs and today’s popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues.

In recording my Nostalgias I have always cherished the idea of sharing my best – titillating your palette to simultaneously evoke your best for comparison, especially since we may have been in the same church – different pews, different times – but all on the same heady, wonderful journey of life in ‘O Beautiful Guyana’ of yesteryear.

The  Catastrophe of  Parenting – By Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam

If there is anyone who can be called the boss in modern, anti-hierarchical parenthood, it’s the children. A definite shift in culture has taken place.

There were times when I have given serious consideration to the state of my continued planetary existence alongside my fellow humans.  Sadly, however the available living options still remain virtually zero.

Recently while out dining, a scene gradually began unfolding before my eyes– one which in my opinion only served to further reveal the collapse of modern day parenthood. Sitting in the booth adjacent to mine, deeply involved in their gastric fare was a young couple with three very young children.  Suddenly, the quasi silence was broken, by the plaintive pleading of the father saying to one of the girls.” Please, pretty please! Eat it up before it gets cold”.  “Come on, try one more bite”  “Then you can have your favorite dessert after”?  “Good girl”.  The mother occasionally or perhaps reinforcing interjected with, “Be a good girl”, you know Mommy loves you”.      Continue reading

Guyanese reminisce about Christmas celebrations – By Tangerine Clarke

Guyanese reminisce about Christmas celebrations

Guyanese black cake baked by Malini #moistdelights.

Loraine, a Guyanese-born, Christmas enthusiast who spends many hours decorating every corner of her Brooklyn house, reflected on the meaning of Christmas, saying, “Jesus is the reason for the season, and then there is the joy and thankfulness in seeing my home decorated with flowers, fairy lights, ceiling ornaments, and to top that off, welcoming family, for sharing and caring.”

Guyanese never gets tired of doing the same things every year for Christmas; they feast on black ‘rum’ cake, sponge cake, garlic pork, ginger beer, pickled vegetables, Pepperpot with bread and Guyana’s classic, XM Rum.        Continue reading
