Happy Independence Day!

Posted by on May 26, 2013

Today – the 26th of May – is the 47th anniversary of Guyana’s independence from the British, so I wish every Guyanese a Happy Independence Day!

A party was held in the village last night to celebrate which include songs, poems, dances and skits from students (primary and secondary) and talks on Guyanese history from figures in the village. The evening ended with a symbolic flag-raising at midnight to signal the beginning of another year of independence. The National Anthem was sung by everybody present, which I have finally learned all of the words to!
