This is the Red Cross Convalescent Home in Durban Backlands, Georgetown Guyana.
We spent most of our time in Guyana here. Akeem has lived here since he was 4 months old.
This picture was taken a few moments after we met him. Notice how suspicious he is of Derek (who's taking the picture). It took him 4 days to go from this......
On our first day with Akeem we took him out of the home to get medicals done. Afterwards, some of the people who have been helping us, Jermaine and Shaneika, took us to a Chinese restaurant for lunch. Akeem inhaled the chicken, but wasn't as fond of the rice. We later found out his diet at the home is often rice twice a day!
His thumb never leaves his mouth!
