December was the most hectic month for my stay-at-home working Mom. As a sought-after dressmaker among middle-class women in the capital, Georgetown, Mom had little time for Christmas shopping, home decoration, and preparation of our traditional Christmas dinner specialties. Guyanese love to party. The Christmas and year-end festivities meant parties galore: office parties, nightclub parties, and house parties. The greatest fete of all was the Old Year’s Night Ball to welcome in the New Year with a bang.

As early as October, to ensure that their dresses were done on time, Mom’s clients who had several functions to attend would start bringing in their dress materials. For the Old Year’s Night Ball, no expense was spared when choosing the best imported fabrics.      Continue reading

Section of my succulent garden

The succulent plants in my garden brighten my life. During humanity’s mad dash towards the abyss, their quiet dynamic presence calm my troubled mind. Under California’s scorching sunshine that set dry brush ablaze, my succulent plants have found a way to survive the extreme heat. Some change color; others become more compact in form.

It was like magic transformed in Georgetown (the then rustic seaside colonial capital of overwhelmingly white-painted wooden buildings on stilts) that citizens could be in their homes or walking on the streets and hearing their own people talking to them, telling familiar stories and presenting general information along with the British music they adored.

Broadcasting had at last come to British Guiana, the lone English colony on the northeast coast of the South American continent, presenting citizens with an open window to the world and widespread relief from the trauma of the recently ended First World War (1914-1918) which took an estimated 17 million lives (20 million wounded), including some of their own countrymen.     Continue reading

In Guyana, a Land Dispute With Venezuela Escalates Over Oil

Venezuela has long insisted it owns everything west of the Essequibo River, including the Guyanese town of Bartica, in a battle that intensified after an oil discovery.

BARTICA, Guyana — At a little tin-roofed beer joint on the west bank of the Essequibo River, Rawle Huggins relaxed on a wooden bench and considered his tiny country’s escalating border spat with its much bigger neighbor, Venezuela.

“Here is Guyana,” said Mr. Huggins, a sometime gold miner, referring to the land beneath him and everything around it. “I don’t live in Venezuela. I live in Guyana. They live,” he added, gesturing beyond the jungle that fringes the town, “over there.”   Continue reading
