we need more Guyana Days

IMG_8234 Today was my first visit to Grout Park (a/k/a Grout Athletic Fields) and to a Guyana Day celebration.  Being neither an athlete nor sport spectator, I found no particular reason to return to Grout Park, unless there are a lot of Guyanese folks there (or people similarly friendly, interesting, and attractive).  I snapped a lot of photos in my two-hour stay, but also had some good conversations, enjoyed the aromas of great food, and felt lots of good vibes. Clearly, I’m sorry I have not been savvy enough to head to previous Guyana Day events, at Grout Park or Central Park. [See a Gazette article about the event here, with photos by Marc Schultz, and reportage by Kassie Parisi.]
