We are soooooo happy to be in Belize
Only 3 days after arriving in Belize, thanks to Elder and Sister Flake,
(who arrived only 2 weeks ago), Julie and I were taken on a
whirlwind tour of the villages we will be visiting regularly
as a part major part of our assignment. We met most of the local
Seminary and Institute teachers and a couple of the Branch Presidents.
We love the blue skies ...
and all the colors of the countryside.
It feels so happy!
As we traveled it was evident that the look and feel
of the country was definitely different than Peru...
though the open markets seemed the same.
They have the best produce.
There are several large Mennonite communities throughout the
country that provide produce, dairy products, chickens and beef.
Similar to Peru, the ma & pa shops are everywhere..
Being our first time out, we passed on the
and opted for the traditional rice and beans.
Next time we are going to try the beans and rice.
Yes, apparently there is a difference.
The houses are small but practical...
and I think this one even comes with 2 bathrooms.
With the doors open and the draft under the house,
who needs air conditioning?
Everywhere we went we met happy and friendly people.
We love their sense of humor.
