What surprised me is that here in Suriname they swab the back of your throat and then take the same swab and shove it up your nose.
Same here in the Philippines. I experience it many times hahahaha. There's also a saliva test where you "drain" your saliva to a tube. This is non-invasive but also expensive.
my family is already in the sky and I am here alone in Suriname. I miss my ladies dearly, this just sucks.
So sorry to hear this. I hope you'll be able to be with them real soon!
