The People I've Met
12.07.2010 - 12.10.2010 81 °F
Tuesday, 12/7/10… Friday, 12/10/2010. The last several days have been spent walking the beach, lazing by the pool, checking out the gift shops and eating in the local restaurants. After my bike ride to the north, I had to rest my leg so I haven’t done much walking.
One of the ladies here is leaving today, so last night several of us went to a restaurant called the Blue Iguana and splurged on Surf and Turf. The lobster was great, the steak just so so. Before heading to the restaurant, we stopped at the Change in Latitude B & B to pick up one of the girls. We met and talked to the new owners who are from Canada. Nice folks who are in love with the Belizean lifestyle. They invited me to come by on Sunday morning for a French toast breakfast. My mouth is already watering.
The people are what I especially have enjoyed on this trip. The ones you get to know a little are so nice. It doesn’t matter what nationality. The office manager at my hotel, Megan, is from England. The English have a reputation for being reserved and stuffy. Megan is anything but. I have met people from Argentina, Canada, England, Holland, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Belize, Germany, Italy, Scotland, Wales, and countless others I’m sure. They have all been pleasant and friendly.
Walking along the Beach
It’s also been fun meeting all the people from the States. Alaska, Massachusetts, California, Florida, Texas, Wisconsin, Kansas, Missouri. Those are the ones I can think of right off the top of my head. We sure are a nation of travelers.
When I started out on this trip, the people back home, I’m sure, thought I was brave. I have found out I am not. There are lots of women who have struck out to visit other countries on their own. We just share a love of travel and meeting different kinds of people.
As my trip winds down and I prepare to return to the States, I want to say how grateful I am to all of those I have met along the way. Your stories have entertained me, your lives have inspired me, and your joy has infected me. Thank you for giving me wonderful memories.
