Let’s Play Mash

It’s Mashramani and in Georgetown the Guyanese are winin’ in the streets. Mash is a celebration of the Republic’s official birthday, February 23, 1970. These days the colours are all bright bright, costumes flash their feathers and spray glitter on the crowds, while the King and Queen sweat and sway majestic to the jump-up soca beat. But, back in 1975 when the Republic was still fresh, Guyana showed its sprankious spirit with whatever came to hand. Sometimes that meant being a Fat Cat with a dressed up donkey.

    • Thanks sHar! I’ve had many Guyanese people contact me with lovely things to say about The Water Here is Never Blue and each time is like a big hug. I’m so happy you enjoyed the book.
