1990 French Guiana

In 1990 I went to French Guiana for the first time with Ian Wallace, Dan & Lou Pegg, Geoff Brown & Alan Mawson. One of the highlights was a 5-day trip up the Maroni River on an outboard canoe with a group of French tourists – although I have to admit to having reservations at the start because it was far more basic than I had (naively) assumed. We spent the nights staying in native villages and were catered for very well by our guides. The days were mainly spent on the river but we stopped a few times to eat and relax – the water was really warm, like a bath 🙂

I will post more photos when I have scanned them, and I apologise for the poor quality but they are scans of rather poor quality 6×4-inch prints:
