Hi, Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Jocelyn and I am currently serving in the Peace Corps in Guyana. I love the country, it is truly a tropical paradise. Guyana is the only English-speaking country in South America and the culture is more closely related to the Caribbean than its Spanish-speaking counterparts.

I have never blogged before and pretty much have no idea what I’m doing. 🙂 So bear with me, please. I initially was not planning on blogging during my service, but most of what I read online about Guyana hasn’t been true – or is only true in some areas. In an effort to set the record straight, and to fulfill the third goal of the Peace Corps “to help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans” (basically to share Guyanese culture with the folks back home) I decided to give it a try.

So welcome to the party pal and I hope you enjoy the ride.
