My Island Leguan Blog

Just another WordPress.com weblog

About February 20, 2010

This is a blog dedicated to bringing you stories about Leguan Island.  You will learn about the people, the place and everything that fascinates me about it. This is my enchanted Island and I hope it will be yours as well. There will be stories, poems in both Standard English and my Island Language as well some call it creolese, national language or patois, but for me it is a living proper language. 

There will be little stories for children as well so I hope you will share some of it with a child in your life. Come with me on this journey.

    Hi,

    I’m hoping you’re still in Leguan. I’d like to contact the library there, if there is one, or the schools to determine useful donations that can be made.

    We don’t have any family there anymore and I’m kind of depending on the “kindness of strangers” Please contact me at northyorke@gmail.com.

    Thank you,
    Natalie Yorke

      Are you from Leguan? I do not live there anymore but I was there last year, I still have family there, I can send you the address of the school. I think it would be wonderful. I am sure the school can use some books for the children.

    Actually I grew up in Vreed-en-Hoop and now we all live in Ontario. But my mother went to Maryville Primary School and we think the donations would go far in Leguan. If you provide me with the contact information for that school (phone number, email, address) I’d really appreciate it.

    Thank you!
    Natalie

    I stumbled upon this blog and really enjoyed reading it.
    I volunteered in Leguan back in August of 2006 – We were a group of 10 Canadians and 2 Guyanese (our leaders). We went to a few schools and the cottage hospital and educated the kids and citizens on various health issues. Our “home” for the month was the school that was located near the stelling. We met so many amazing people and everyone was so nice to us. I recall 4 young boys (2 sets of brothers) who would come by the school to talk and play with us. They would tell us about their life, their hopes for the future and taught us how to play cricket. I often think of them and wonder what they are doing today, I would love to reconnect. I remember the 2 older brothers were Javed and Nick, and they were best friends. They both lived on the “long road”, but Nick once told me that Javed lived on the “rich” side of town. I didn’t quite understand what that meant.
    Not that those two names would help, but if anyone knows who I’m talking about I’d love to know how they are doing.
