|Fancy eh? Boodhoo's General Store - serious hardware store inside|
|Love the name|
Mining and logging are big industries in Guyana. Bartica is filled with hardware stores that sell your regular run of the mill hardware store items along with gear specific to these industries: picks, shovels, rubber boots, scales (for measuring), hardhats, backpacks, huge scoops for a skidster loader and giant chains (like those on a bicycle but bigger) for road and hauling equipment.

|Local roving preacher with mic and rolling speaker - friendly guy|
|New, active construction - mixed use|
|Pedistrian walkway called the Arcade - heat of the day so it is empty|
In addition to the regular stores, there was a pedestrian walkway called the Arcade that was nothing but small booths selling anything and everything. There were also vendors on the main street as well.
