Greetings from Paramaribo

I returned today from Paramaribo
 Here are some pictures of the town
 Unfortunately some of the buildings are in poor shape
 But I loved this one : De Waag
 I enjoyed a cappuccino and some shade here.............
 The Suriname river 
 All pictures taken with mobile phone..... 
 This afternoon I returned home and tomorrow I will travel to Italy 
 with my son Felix for 5 days
 I will take my Nikon with me this time

Have to start unpacking and packing. Am I crazy?????? Think so!
Had a good time in Paramaribo. I love the country, I love the people.
From nasi and sateh I am flying to pizza's and pastas.
What a life! Sometimes life is good:)

    What a lovely trip for Felix...enjoy every sight you see and every morsel you taste!
