My granddaughter is scheduled to go to Guyana this summer with the Peace Corps for 27 months. Can you tell me what she needs to bring that is typically hard to get. Any useful information would be helpful. She does not know what part of the country she will be in until she gets there. How long does it take mail and packages to arrive from the United States? I appreciate very much your response. Thank you. Fred Tate

Hi Fred,

I have a post on what packing for Guyana here. It’s mostly suited to the rainforest interior!

None of this sounds vaguely authentic. Must be hotel tourist fare. No mention of blue-back crabs, curried or in a spinach soup, or simply boiled. The way to eat Bora is quick fried with shrimps, garlic, onion and egg – not forgetting wiri-wiri or bird peppers. Mutton curry with dall puri, potato puri or roti. Boiled breadfruit, or fried breadfruit. Curried pumpkin with shrimps. Sour tripe with onions. I know cassava bread as large and round, best eaten slightly toasted with salted butter. I could go on.
