Goooood morning (etc.) from Suriname! I arrived in Paramaribo on Mar.3 and am chilling out until I head into the jungle in two days. Here are my observations thus far, delivered in a format that I’m sure has a name, but I don’t know what it is. I call it backwards logic.
- You walk past a dog and it instantly and submissively bows its head (You know you’re in a developing country when…).
- A Heineken delivery truck pulls up outside your guesthouse at 9:30 a.m. (You know you’re in a former Dutch colony when…).
