Following my day at Brownsweg, Suriname, I woke up bright and early the following day at Stone Island, deep. Come along with me because I begin a second day by heading into town to find some food and then go fishing for piranhas in Suriname. Join me and my manual as we go out to the country’s largest lake to grab a breakfast!

My day began at the reservoir, that was formed by a dam in 1964 of Stone Island. The region used to be a craggy valley, but the sign of that valley are the tops of trees that rise up from the water! After getting some sick shots of the lake with my drone, my friend and guide Imro from Jenny Tours and I headed to town to catch some breakfast.
Suriname is a mix of many cultures, such as African, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Dutch, and the people. It is an eclectic mix!
The Stone Island Resort was situated about 10 minutes from Brownsweg. I could not wait to view it during the day. We needed to stick to a dirt road to get there. It is a city with huts, homes, and restaurants. We stopped at a Chinese grocery store to determine whether they had any buns or wontons.
They had fish, poultry, also about 3 distinct types of empanadas. Empanadas are. I have another with cheese, one with shrimp, and one with poultry. I was reminded by the chicken one with some churro with chicken filling. It had a few flavors that are Chinese and has been a lot softer than the Cuban empanadas that I eat straight home in Miami.
The shrimp empanada has been thinner , and more flaky. It was amazing and there were not that a lot of these , although the prawns interior were tiny! I adored pepper and the spices. The cheese empanada was heavier and the greatest of all of them. It was cheese bread. It was a white cheese. I dipped it into my coffee to make it even better. The coffee has been the best part!
Imro bought Nutella , brewed coffee, and some bread . I suggest buying Dutch chocolate there! I got a beverage, which was similar to pure coconut. It was refreshing and was like a mix of almond milk and coconut flesh! Then Imro bought so we can fish for piranha some pins!
We drove back to Stone Island.
Roads and the scenery informed me where I spent 22 times back in 2013. We stopped to observe some reddish hand monkeys in the trees. They had been deep in the bush and enjoy up 40 feet!
Back at the lake, we went out on a metal pier. Imro cut a poultry up. He grabbed a huge piranha with it! Its fearsome teeth were clearly visible and that I could see piranhas in Suriname are feared. I grabbed one that was! Imro cleaned it and we chose it to the dining area and kitchen to be fried!
There were tons of bones in it! I waited for it to cool down. The flesh was good although gamy. Your skin was crispy and that I needed to be cautious eating it. I nearly threw up because of a bone that got trapped in my stomach. The bones are the one thing I hate about eating fish. You always need to be super cautious when ingesting it.
The meat has been actually great! There were no bones between the spines that are huge, so it was easy to eat the flesh. I was grateful there was lots of meat! Then we went to the mind. Imro advised me to go to the brains and the cheeks. The cheek was really great. It was just like the meat of fish!
Then we headed out to Visit Howler Monkey Island!
Looking for wildlife is hit or miss, but the reptiles are on the island. Before we entered a duck and chicken farm I found a lizard. There’s also a yellow-foot tortoise there. I had never seen one this large before. Regrettably tortoises are compromised. Imro and that I took a boat journey, after observing him for a little while!
