Placencia, February 2015

Today we boated to Monkey River where we spotted manatee, turtles, howler monkeys, snakes, tarantula, and many beautiful birds–so John you can either be impressed or jealous, your choice.  Those hanging things are bird nests! The birds are social and group together.

Our guide was Creole. There are many ethnic groups in Belize. There were Mayans originally, and when the Spanish came they intermarried creating the Mestizos. The English came and intermarried with the Carib slaves creating the Creole. Then there are the Garifuna who are African. Then the Mennonites and Amish. And what’s crazy is now the Chinese are here and have taken over all the grocery stores!

We got back to Millers Landing, Home, Sweet Home!  We had a refreshing swim and time to read.
