This is New Amsterdam

Diwali is a national holiday in Guyana, and there ain't nobody out on the streets. So I thought it would be a perfect time to walk around and snap some shots, because I feel a little self-conscious taking pictures when there are lots of people around for some reason. Here are two photos that show you scenes from New Amsterdam's Main street. The first was taken looking north from the Charles Place instersection, right by the old hospital. The second is the same direction, but several blocks further down the road. In that one, you can see the lovely patio area of the Secret End restaurant and bar, a nice place to go and read and have a cool drink. To give you an idea of the distance between one photo and the next, look at the grey truck. In the first photo, the truck is small-looking, several blocks away, and in the second picture I'm standing beside it.
