From Spain to Guyana

Tonight, when the dark sky full of stars and a half moon was covering our balcony I received a new visitor from the north east of South America, Guyana.
I do not know much about dansing in Guyana, but at our pool bar these dancers made an acceptable performance when performing Pasodoble etc.
Modern Guyana is bordered to the east by Suriname, to the south and southwest by Brazil, to the west by Venezuela, and on the north by the Atlantic Ocean.
At 215,000 km2, Guyana is the third-smallest independent state on the mainland of South America (after Uruguay and Suriname). Its population is approximately 770,000. It is one of the four non-Spanish-speaking territories on the continent, along with the countries of Brazil (Portuguese), Suriname (Dutch), and French Guiana (French).
The flag of Guyana, known as The Golden Arrowhead, was adopted in 1966. It was designed by Whitney Smith, a prominent American vexillologist . The colours are : green for agriculture and forest, white for rivers and water, gold for mineral wealth, black for endurance, and red for zeal and dynamism.
The visitor from Guyana (my 153 flag) was one of 52 new unique visitors yesterday.

Oh the pasa doble is one of my favourite dances. I was fortunate as a teenager to attend latin american dancing class and can still move welll to the rhythm - sadly my husband does not possess the same atyle and when we did attend dancing class (just the once) it was a disaster! I still laugh at his style as he made his way into couples dancing away! lol! For health and safety reasons we did not attend any more classes! lol!
