Get ready to run across the border

The border crossing between English Guyana and Suriname caught us by surprise, because it was so unusual. On the ferry ride from Corriverton to Nieuw Nickerie, we noticed everyone lining up to exit before the boat docked. We got in line too and, as soon as the safety bar lifted and we were free to exit, our neighbors began to take off, literally running across the bridge with their suitcases bouncing up and down violently behind them. We took off too and ended up being 4th and 5th in line. We got through immigration fairly quickly, so I'm not really sure what all that running was for. It was amusing though.
