Lifeblood of Saramacca
Hey everybody, I entered a photo contest and I need as much help as I can get to win it. That means you and everyone you know should go vote for my photo in a hurry. It doesn’t take long and all you have to do is verify your age and then vote. That’s it. Below is the photo I submitted. Just click on the picture or the link below it. When you’re done, if you still want to help, pass the link on to a friend (or 1000). Thanks from the jungles of Suriname!
Toward the end of the 17th century, slaves escaped from Dutch plantations and slipped into the ominous jungles of Suriname to carve out a living. This river served as their passageway deep into the heart of the Amazon. Some 400 years later, the Suriname River remains the lifeblood of this incredible people; its waters still vital the survival of the Saramaccan culture.
