View Full Version : Guyana National Day, Giant Otters, and an old friend!

I just saw my country's flag at the top of AW and realised once more what a wonderful place this is! Where I live (England) it's actually a day too late (it was on the 22nd) but I thought I'd post this blog in celebration. (http://theadventuresofandreasalvador.blogspot.com/)

It was started by my old friend Salvador, with whom I spent a year rambling around South America when I was a girl -- him and his girlfriend. He was a wonderful 19 year old back then, and it's so great to see what he's doing now. It's just weird to see him as a grey haired man -- I haven't seen him for over 25 years!

Diane McTurk is the Dian Foley of giant otters. There are a lot of giant animals in Guyana and otters are one of them, facing extinction. If you love animals expecially ones in the wild, check out the blog - scroll down to see the lovely otter photos.

Also, because few people know about Guyana, here's a lovely YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK0DT-yBjFU) about this wonderful little country.

Aruna, the little flag wouldn't be up there if you hadn't told me it was Guyana's National Day in the first place. :)
