A caiman. Caimans are small sized crocodiles living in the marshes, swamps, mangrove river and lakes of Central and South America. The one on the photo is medium sized. You have to be lucky these days to see a caiman in Suriname, as they are being hunted on. Caimans are considered a delicacy.

Man selling incense, pictures of Hindu Gods and items for pujas at the big market in Nickerie. Around 28 percent of the people of Suriname follow Hinduism, making it the second biggest religion in Suriname. In Nickerie the majority is Hindu.

Trying to spot and capture dolphins (with my camera) on the Suriname river, near where the Suriname river is joined by the Commewijne river.The dolphins in these rivers are sweet water dolphins and live off the fish in the rivers. We searched for a long time, but as you can see by the water, the weather wasn't perfect and it was hard to spot them. I managed to spot one, but unfortunately it was camera shy! Had a great time though!

The Suriname river. This river is the biggest and most important river in Suriname, and is 480 km long. It flows from highlands in the south to the north, where it ends in the ocean. The river is important for fishing, irrigation, transportation, and recreation.

The main reason the colonial rulers wanted Suriname was for the fertile land which was suitable for plantation. Suriname had a lot of sugar, coffee and banana plantations. The slaves, who originated from Africa and who used to work on these plantations, lived in small wooden houses, some of which remain today. The wooden houses on the photo are of the former plantation of Bergendal. There wasn't much luxury, and the whole family lived in such a small house. Today these houses showcase items from the colonial period and are being shown in tours to teach people about the past.
