"Georgetown was yet another old colonial town that had seen much better days and had little of special interest, but, like Basse, it was a nice easy going place to be in. What made Georgetown so agreeable for me was the comfortable government rest house in the painting above. As well as there being a number of other guests, notably a French couple and a Canadian girl, also travellers like myself, the place had a most helpful caretaker, who seemed pleased to keep us all supplied with pots of tea. It was all very easy going and restful, and had I not been running out of time, I would have been happy to stay for a few more days. As it was I had to settle for two nights before returning to the road for Banjul." - MH
