Every time I return to the nation of my birth, it changes by a generation. I’ve just checked into the Sea Breeze hotel and am getting accustomed to the fantastic suite of rooms CSIH has reserved for me, in preparation for the week of public work we’ll be doing.

The place is wired, breezy and sexy. A far cry from my first trip to Guyana as an adult, back in 2000. Back then it was still crawling out of Third World hell. It’s not out of the woods, but progress is tangible… based solely on 2 hours of hotel exploration in the middle of the night.

We’ll see if I feel the same way in the light of day.
