Under a waning full moon the beach in San Pedro Town was graced on Wednesday night, February 27th with the sound of hypnotic music and glowing fire dancers. The group of dancers were visiting the island from Mexico and they held impromptu performances throughout the evening, entertaining those who were dining and drinking at beach side businesses. With the moon lit Caribbean as a backdrop, it was a magical moment watching the graceful moves of the dancers while the fire trails wove around them, creating radiant patterns in the dark.
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.
