City Hall, Georgetown (T) by Michael Novins

I visited Guyana in August 2007, when I spent a couple of nights at Cara Lodge, the only historic hotel in Georgetown (caralodge.com). Cara Lodge was constructed as Woodbine House in the 1840s and converted into a hotel in 1996. I spent an afternoon wandering around Georgetown (the hotel arranged for a former police officer to act as my guide), when I visited most of the capital's historic buildings, including St. George's Cathedral (one of the tallest wooden churches in the world), Georgetown City Hall (a nineteenth-century Gothic Revival building), Parliament Building and Stabroek Market, the Caribbean's most attractive market complex (especially after the Marché en Fer in Port-au-Prince was destroyed by the January 2010 earthquake, a few months after I visited the market in October 2009).
