Paramaribo

By minibus, ferry and again minibus to Paramarbo.
When i arrived in Georgetown, Guyana i had a unpleasant surprise, the Surinam Embassy told me they no longer issue tourist cards, i have to get the tourist card online. I did try to do that but with only a cellphone it was not possible. Went again to the Embassy, was told there If go next morning to the ferry border they might still have some of the old tourist card forms a i might get it there. I did so and after quite some waiting and explaining i got it.
