    Well done APNU +AFC. A day to be proud of. Looking forward to returning to the good old days when education, health care, sanitation, jobs and trade was something to admire for all. Continue the hard work. I would love to return and contribute to the advancement of my people. Love to all.

    Gillian – March 29, 2016
    Wow. You left Guyana when it was still British Guiana. I left many, many years later, on Sept 11, 1987. Our son turned 5 years old on Sept 15 of that year. We were only allowed C$33 per person so for the 3 of us that was C$99. I had a skill in demand and sponsored myself, husband and son and we travelled and stayed with my inlaws for a while because apartments were difficult to obtain. We got jobs within the first week of arriving and our son was enrolled in school. My husband thought the alcohol was free on the plane so when we got to Trinidad, stopped for a while, he ended up spending money so we actually landed with just C$80. We left Guyana because life was getting more challenging. We lived in the East Coast so water was hard, food shortage, although due to my job I found a way to obtain those items in short supply for myself, family and friends. I remember on the plane BWIA when I got the food I thought if this is the food in Canada, I need the plane to turn back to Guyana. I miss our fruits from home, spice managos, ginnip, guava, star apple, sappadilla, sugar cane, water coconut, you name it. I miss it. I wish I had travelled more within Guyana and enjoy the beauty and richness. I wish so many things were different. The Guyanese people are the best in the world. I must say some people change when they come to North America especially those in the USA. For most part, we have a great connection of Guyanese friends and we keep it real and have a good time whenever we get together, so grateful for that. My husband’s child hood friends made him joined their cricket club, Pegasus and we enjoyed all kinds of events. Had it not been for the cricket club life would have been a bore. We had our church community and so we were blessed with a strong loving support system. Thanks to all. Home is home, Guyana will always be home. Miss so much especially now that Easter just passed. Have great memories to live by, thankful for that. We celebrated everything and I love the fact we were many races, religion and we lived with love.
