26/08/2004 - Well he's arrived!!! First contact from Ben, he arrived safe in Georgetown the capital of Guyana despite a temptation to go "missing" in Barbados on the way!! Apparently he's been busy practising the Guyanese art of sitting in the sun doing nothing.

18/08/2004 - Only 1 week until I leave for guyana on 25th August, I cannot believe it is almost here!!!
