Impressions of Georgetown (Guyana)


We spent a couple of days in Georgetown and enjoyed it. Here are some visual impressions.


The Red House – So called because of the distintive red-wallaba shingles that protect the imported (pitch-pine) softwood beneath.
Demerara shutters. They used to put chunks of ice in the wooden box at the bottom which cooled the hot air coming into the house
Typical architecture
Some buildings could use some maintenance
The interior of Georgetown’s cathedral
