Guelph and Niagra Falls dont have OIL


Guelph and Niagara are places in a city of gold. a cold city of gold, fools gold, but still a city of gold.

Guyana is not golden, nevah has been known as such.

Emerald city yes, when the sun shines off the Green, aftah the rain falls..but not yellow with the glint of gold

:S :S :S

bro, dont let people hear yuh : Guyana was thought to be the legendary city El Dorado.



Sir Walter Ralegh was a strong supporter of the legend of El Dorado
– that a king covered in gold lived in a magnificent city by the side of Lake Parime.

The idea originated in the 1540s
among gold adventurers and was the basis for countless expeditions during the latter 1500s.
Some adventurers claimed to have found “El Dorado”
including Juan Martin de Albujar who located El Dorado in the Guyana Highlands
– the Pakaraima Mountains – between the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers.
Sir Walter Ralegh – Britain’s great adventurer – heard the story from Don Antonio de Berrio
and Ralegh’s second in command, Lawrence Keymis, determined after discussions with Amerindians
that El Dorado could be reached by travelling up the Essequibo River.

Ralegh supported four voyages to the Guianas in 1579, 1595, 1596, and 1617
and went personally on the 1579 and 1617 journeys.
During the 1617 trip, Ralegh’s son Wat died on the Orinoco River

All of the earliest maps of the Guianas seem to be derived from Ralegh’s perspective
and included Lake Parime and the links between the Essequibo River and the Lake
– including the Hondius map of 1599
the Jansson map of 1647
a Vellum map now in the British Library 1794.

Maps continued to place Lake Parime in the Guianas for over 150 years ~~~

bro, this statement needs to be retracted and apology issued to Guyanese, everywhere !
Hundreds of years foreign adventurers hunted Guyana for Gold !
and your " nevah has been known as such"
makes you look void of general knowledge of El Dorado !
Here , have a Sip :whistle:
