In Paramaribo I visited the downtown area. Known for the Dutch colonial structures, the inner city of Paramaribo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Some of the structures reminded me not of Amsterdam but of New Orleans.
I also visited the Zeeland Fort and Museum.
The Chinese community here supports several Asia style markets that certainly draw my attention: green vegetables, Chinese buns, roast duck, even sushi. And "Kaaiman Saté."
When I posted a photo of the capture of a huge Black Caiman (Alligator) in Guyana, a friend asked, "Did you release it or cook it?"
In Guyana, the researchers released the Black Caiman. But here in Suriname, the Asian market has "Kaaiman Saté" on sale. I couldn't resist.
I stayed at the Eco Resort Inn Paramaribo and used that as a base for my travels.
