My friend Jack tells me that whenever he travels to a foreign country he tries to spend time at a school.
As I follow Jack’s suggestion, on my very last stop in the “interior” of Guyana, here at the Caiman House Lodge, I didn’t have to walk very far.
The Caiman House Lodge is in the middle of Yupukari, an Amerindian village with a population of about 500 people of the indigenous Macushi tribe. The village supports three school buildings, outdoor meeting pavilions and a well-stocked, Internet-connected library.
