The three little country’s that form the part of South America called known as the Guianas are about as inaccessible as possible in the Americas. They are jam packed with some of the most pristine, and plain thick, rain forest in the world. In fact, the interior of these countries is so rough that the vast majority live right along the coastal highway that connects them all together. This highway is one of the most interesting drives on can make. Starting in the south you would begin in French Guyana, which is not yet an independent country but a department of France. The country speaks French and the highways are smooth and developed. Further to the north, you’ll drive through the former dutch colony of Suriname. Though Dutch the people speak a variety of languages and come from numerous backgrounds. In the north you’ll finally reach Guyana, and English speaking country full of opportunities for adventure.
Regardless of which country you travel through the chances are that you’ll come across houses like the one in the photograph above. These are house made with the materials one had at hand, and although they might not be pretty, they are functional and beautiful in their own right.
