Surinam family in French Guyana

The story behind "Surinam family in French Guyana"

During the civil/jungle war in Surinam in the 1980’s many people fled to neighbouring French Giuana. Only the mother of this family still speaks a bit of Dutch, the kids never learnt it.

This friendly bunch took us into their homes for the night even giving us a place to sleep and food to eat, while our bikes were parked in the kitchen! So many nice and good people we met while cycling the Americas, don’t believe the hype and see the world…
