Review of "The House on Coco Street" a Film by Damani Baker

The Secret Side of Guyana

Pegasus Hotel, Kingston, Georgetown, Guyana
<p>&nbsp;I was always sorry to be leave Georgetown. Somehow, the city had created the illusion of familiarity. Within a few weeks I&rsquo;d acquired somewhere to live and a few friends, and I had a rough idea of where everything was.

How can a place like Guyana keep itself safe?

Mabaruma Police Station and Magistrate Court
