Through research I guessed my country of service correctly, and in the process I made a friend who lives in Suriname. Her name is Esther Lijkwan and I found her through her website:
She delivered a presentation about Suriname at my college when I was a student at Colorado Technical University Online, and I also purchased her e-book which tells all about Suriname. If you're at all interested in Suriname I recommend her book, it's a good read:
The Undiscovered Country "In the Lungs of the Earth"
It's crazy what a small world it really is, and it's sweet to know that even from another country you can make friends and establish relationships. I was even offered a ride from the airport upon arrival...sweet Esther!
Just figured I would throw that out there so you can check out her website and maybe read her e-book.
