And so it begins.
After a 13 hour day traveling, which included waking at 3am to catch the 6:25am flight in Philly, we arrived in Belize to 80 degrees, yay! and slight drizzle which did Not dampen our spirits.
We breezed through customs, with Welcome to Belize and Welcome back! William, our intrepid transportation host and font of wisdom, drove us out to Bullet Tree Falls with commentary of current state of affairs, quite an educational ride with tidbits about politics, cultural differences and life in Belize compared to life in the States; not so different after all!
After a delicious enchilada, rice and veggie dinner, retired to the hum of tree frogs overhead. Within ten minutes, zzzzzz.
Woke up to the calls of parrots, toucans and assorted feathered friends in the trees. Refreshed and ready to GO!
Today we plan to walk the 2+ miles to Bishop Martin School to make a schedule for the week; in Belize most everything is scheduled IN Person and In the Moment. We will walk back to Bullet Tree Falls and check in with Immaculate Concepcion School as well. Then into town to Sacred Heart Junior College to check on the training for Saturday!
Oh yes, a good day!
