What I like, love loathe in Suriname

I really had to get used to being here and even though I know that I wouldn’t be able to live here at the moment for a few different reasons, I’m trying to enjoy the little things....
I decided to do a like, love, loathe post  (as the idea of Futures ) about being here.


Like
I like it that it is never really cold and that I can wear summer clothes every day.
I get to see my mum a lot. Every day she comes by, mostly reads a newspaper outside and we chat a bit and she helps out where ever she can.

Newspaper from Suriname (in Dutch)

I like the little pieces of Surinamese fruit on vinegar.  Healthy and yummy.


I also like swinging in the hammock at the back of the house, especially if it makes me feel less warm because of the wind.


Love
I love doing tv fitness every weekday. I still want to lose some more weight...and try to get a flatter tummy and thinner thighs.  Haha I have a couple of trousers that don’t fit right......When I’m doing it I sometimes think : 'what am I thinking ? why am I doing this to myself ?' You also get very hot while doing fitness here in Suriname. But I need it and it feels good having done that much to get fit and toned....

I love taking care of my natural hair. I found a leave in conditioner that I love and my aunt blessed me with supplements for hair, skin, nails and body.  Yay !



Loathe
There are a few things that I don't like but what I really loathe here is the heat. A lot of times it is just too hot. I looked yesterday at a sign with the temperature and it said 33 degrees Celsius.
To live here I’d need a fully airconditioned house. Well, the fan does help but whenever you go to an area in the house where there is no fan, you start to sweat very quickly , especially if you’re trying to do housework. So annoying and practically unbearable. So the fans in this house move quite a lot. (if we really want to be cool in a place without fan)And the kids sometimes drop the fans and then we have less....I’m trying to not wear too many clothes when I’m in the house....to keep cool but it doesn’t help much...
I also loathe the mosquitoes. They keep bugging you day and night.


We use vape but it doesn’t always help that much. And there’s one particular mosquito who is getting ‘ a cold shower’ from me today. It is a mosquito that carries a disease called Chikungunya and you have more and more of those cases here in Suriname.  A few people even died from getting it. My mum and Ixora also got the symptoms a week ago (high temperature/ fever and body pains) but did better shortly after it started.  Praise God !!
When I initially wrote this I wasn’t so lucky myself to come across one of those devilish mosquitoes but recently I’ve been getting symptoms of Chikungunya myself so I’ve been mostly in bed today and taking pain killers every 4 hours.....so I'm loathing the mosquitoes even more now. LOL

What do you mean a bite from a mosquito with Chikungunya ? I feel more as if a very heavy person sat on top of me for an hour or so.... -feeling sore and weak.....
(but I will surely be better soon...by the grace of God.)


What did you like, love, loathe lately ?


I’d love to hear from you.....

Love and blessings,
