We received super exciting news – we are invited to an Independence Day picnic/party at the Ambassador’s residence! Apparently staff had attempted to secure an invitation before to no avail.. so we are very lucky. Although we do not currently have a U.S. Ambassador to Guyana, there is a man currently acting on their behalf called the Charge d’Affaires. And most importantly, there is a pool that we can spend the entire day in.
Update: I did in fact spend the entire time in the pool. There was some food, but since the only thing I could eat there was lays potato chips.. I ended up in the pool again pretty quickly.
