Arriving in Guyana / Arrivée au Guyana

With other volunteers first night in Guyana

First night in Georgetown, Guyana with other volunteers- that’s me, center-back

La version française suit l’anglais

I arrived in Guyana a week ago, and what a week it’s been!

Meeting Cuso volunteers

While waiting for my flight, I met nine other volunteers from across the country who were also headed to Guyana.

Good thing we liked each other, because we’ve all been staying at a local guesthouse, the Rima.

Here, some of the other volunteers and I are settling into the guesthouse and enjoying our first night.

The 14 of us—we’ve grown—are completing a 10-day orientation with the local Cuso office before beginning our placements.

It has been great to get to know everyone, share our stories and experience the first few days in Guyana together.

Je suis arrivée au Guyana il y a une semaine, et je n’ai pas chômé!

Rencontre avec autres cooperants-volontaires de Cuso

En attendant mon vol, j’avais rencontré neuf autres coopérants-volontaires de partout au pays, en route eux aussi vers le Guyana.

Heureusement que nous nous entendons bien, car nous séjournons tous dans un petit gîte local, le Rima.

Notre groupe — qui a grossi et compte maintenant 14 membres — termine un programme d’orientation de 10 jours donné par le bureau local de Cuso avant le début des affectations.

C’était super de pouvoir ainsi faire connaissance, partager nos histoires et vivre ensemble nos premiers jours au Guyana.
