When you enjoy nearly every second of a trip it is impossible to capture ALL your favorite moments. As far as I am concerned, being in Suriname was just one big happy moment. You got an idea if you've seen the photos of the opening of the BAD Hair Uprooted exhibition in Suriname now watch a few more favorite memories captured non professionally on by phone and video. 

How do you not feel blessed when someone like Obed opens your exhibition. A passionate spoken word artist who performs in three languages; Dutch, English and Saramacaans, a Maroon Language.

Food suriname

The food was awesome! I kept it healthy Paleo with lots of green and veggies. One of Suriname's main dishes: Pom.
