Suriname was my first stop on this incredible journey across South America! And what a beginning it was!
Suriname, French Guiana, and Guyana are three of the least visited places in South America. In fact, people would often ask me where I began my journey, and when I said Suriname, they would just give me a blank stare. It didn't help when I said between French Guiana and Guyana either...haha...Even many South Americans don't know much about these three places. However, that is precisely one of the reason I enjoyed them so much!
Suriname is beautiful. The south in particular is incredible! I enjoyed my stay in Suriname VERY much. Mentally, I prepared myself to hear a lot of Spanish on this adventure. However, My first few months were spent in a Dutch speaking country, French speaking country, and an I-don't-even-know what speaking country...haha~ BUT! A smile speaks every language, and I found the people in each of these countries to be simply amazing.
