Go For a Swim

Some time during Training, Peace Corps took us out to Splashmin's Water Park for a weekend afternoon. Splashmin's is a lakeside park many miles south of Georgetown near the Timehri airport. It often hosts major festivals and regattas. When they said "water park," I naïvely expected waterslides. It's just the lake, but they have jet skis and canoes you can rent, volleyball nets, a pool and video game hall, and loudspeakers playing soca. Everyone had a wonderful time swimming or hanging out under the thatched cabanas. It rained heavily in midafternoon, a nice break from the intense sun.
