Phil , based in the USA but normally spends a lot of time in Guyana promoting stamp collecting in the schools there. There are probably more Guyanese in the USA than in Guyana.
You got that right! Everyone here either has lived in the US or has a relative in the US - or Canada. Once I was in the city with a co-worker and a elderly man on a bike approached us and asked if we were from Louisiana. Both of us said "yes" and then he asked if we knew where Norco was. Now I bet you no one here outside of kacyds has ever even heard of Norco. It used to be a little refinery town outside of New Orleans. Not sure about today but years ago there was next to nothing there. Well apparently he had a son that was working there and he had just returned from a visit. A couple times I visited a local church in a village outside of Georgetown and a young Guyanese man would accompany us, I think his name was James. Anyway James had actually lived and attended school in Atlanta. I was extremely impressed (and a bit humbled) with his knowledge of US history.

The following two covers were actually issued by the Chinese Authorities not the Guyana Post Office. The "Guyana" stamp on the first one is deemed bogus by the Guyana Philatelic Society, it differs from the Guyanese issue in that the bogus ones have a white border.
