It sounds like a problem no one would empathize with…but the sad truth is that over time one can become immune to the tropical beauty that surrounds them when living in paradise.
Every day we idly pass blooms that would merit exclamations of joy from a tourist who’s never seen an orchid or a bougainvillea growing like a weed while shamelessly showing off colors that have yet to be named.
Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the hibiscus!
Peek-a-boo! Baby green iguana finds a hiding space!
Bougainvillea – one of many, many colors!
About the Author: Tamara Sniffin
I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
