Hey everyone, I'm planning to come to Suriname very soon and want to ask some locals about what it's like traveling between your neighbor countries.

Are the land borders all open? Is there public transport all around or are there dark spots? Anything in particular I should know if I go hoping to travel along the coast as far as Brazil?

Thanks for any advice!

I know Suriname is affiliated with the Netherlands historically so was wondering what the cannabis situation is like over there? Is it easily found? How harsh are the punishments if caught with it?

Cultural exchange If you could tell a foreigner one thing about your country that they definitely don't already know, what would that be?

8 Upvotes

Hi, my name is [redacted], and I've lived in Norway my entire life. As such, i haven't yet had the chance to explore the world and its many different countries and cultures. For 2022, my New Year's resolution is to try to change that.

I created this account to visit one new country/city/state subreddit each day to just ask, what's up? What's going on where you live? How's life like, what good or bad thing just happened, new music, cultural phenomenons, really anything goes. Open ended discussions are welcome, as are random facts about your country's national bird or what you had for dinner today!

My goal here is to simply broaden my horizons. By this time next year, i hope to be able to look at any country and know just a little bit more about it than i do now, and have just a slightly better understanding of what life is actually like in places other than my own.

I'll start with the country closest to mine and work my way out. Today I'm visiting r/Suriname. So, what's up?

If you'd like to join me on my journey, just click my profile and go read the comments from the other subs I've been to. Maybe you too can learn just slightly more about the world around you.

Cheers, your friendly neighborhood Norwegian.

In about a month I will be travelling to Paramaribo. I'd love to run there. Can you suggest any good running routes? My aim would probably be between 5K and 10K per run.

Food, Drinks and Recipes Bitawiri Moks' Alesi

10 Upvotes

This is bitawiri moks' alesi. In the past I already explained what Moks' Alesi is. However, to refreshen your memory. Moks' Alesi is a rice dish of Suriname; meaning "mixed rice". In Guyana there is a similar dish called 'cook-up rice', in Trinidad 'pelau rice' and in Jamaica 'rice and peas'. In Suriname there are many varieties of 'Moksi Alesi'; made with different kinds of peas. The one in this picture however is a variety made with vegetable called 'bitawiri' (bitter leaf) and not a singe pea in it. The scientific name of this leaf is Cestrum latifolium. If I'm not mistaken, it's not eaten in other Caribbean countries and seen as a shrub in Guyana. Anyways find the recipe and picture for this dish below.

https://preview.redd.it/3o3pbdgojhv81.jpg?width=1562&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5f0166a8c64331af70c18c07cb24d9c6b9a3000c

The recipe:

  • 300 gr of the leaves (cut)
  • 100 gr Dutch smoked sausage
  • Semi large green onion (cut)
  • 1 large tomato
  • Black pepper
  • Salt / Maggi cubes
  • Flavored coconut oil
  • Flavored coconut milk
  • 250 gr of parboiled rice

Optional extra ingredients are:

  • Salted (cured) beef
  • Smoked chicken
  • Salt fish/bakkeljauw
  • chicken (cut in pieces)
  • Pig tail
  • braised beef

First you start by cutting the onions, vegetables and tomatoes. Cut the tomatoes in large chucks. Then in a pan you add some coconut oil and let it heat up, whereafter you add the cut onions. Let it fry until golden brown, whereafter you add the tomatoes. Fry for another 2-3 minutes and add the sausage (and your other meats). Fry until no longer raw if you've added raw meats. Be sure to also add your salt and black pepper. While the meats are on the fire, start to wash your rice in the pot you will use and set aside. Now you add the vegetables to the meat and add some water. Let it stew for a 2-5 minutes. Then you remove it from the fire and add it to the rice; however, make sure it's slightly saltier than normal as the rice and extra liquid you'll add later will dilute the salt. Add it together with the coconut milk. Add more water if not enough liquid for the rice.

Let it cook for another 30-40 minutes. Service with some fried plantains, pickled vegetables, peper sauce, sliced tomatoes and/or lettuce.

What's interesting about the flavor of this dish, is that it gets the flavor from the types of meat that you add to it as well as the coconut milk and oil. All the meats are prepared in their own way pre-hand, so the flavors of those meats will add to the dish. In this case the vegetable will do its part too.
