My impromptu visit to Georgetown, Guyana has an unexpected pleasant surprise.
Joining in the festivities are members of The Smoke Squadron a part of the Brazilian Air Force who will be performing an airshow in Georgetown.
Leaving my hotel around 3:30pm, I take a stroll to the Sea Wall area of Georgetown where the performance will be held. Even without an airshow the area is a popular hangout for local families on a Sunday afternoon.
Arriving at the Sea Wall, it is a bit disappointing to see the place littered with all sorts of trash and poorly maintained.
I chat a few moments with one of the young kite fliers who reminds me of my earlier days doing the same thing.
Nearby a circle of girls are playing an interesting clapping game that boils down to who will be the last girl standing. It turns out to be the one with the longest legs and best balance.
Although the airshow starts off behind schedule some of the performances have most of us in awe.
