I usually don't do a morning post, but from what I've heard internet will be hard to come by in Belize City, so this may be the last post until we reach Texas.

This morning the group got up early (Lionel George and I got up at 5 to see the sunrise, the rest got up at 6), to go see the "Great Belize Canoe Race" (...or something like that). Its been an annual event for the past 10 years in which about 40 canoe teams race up the river from San Ignacio to Belize City. The race is spanned over 4 days, and always has a huge turn out for watching. from there we walked up to Pops for a very crowded breakfast. In about 15 minutes we're heading to St. Hilda's one last time, and will be doing a puppet show amongst what from what I've heard will be a 'talent' show. Along with the show, there are going to be a children's dance (which i saw videos of from they're practice, they are really good) and some of the children we've trained to use the puppets will be doing a show of their own. All the families are invited to come, so it will be the perfect way to say goodbye to the school. After that we
re travelling directly into Belize City, and...who knows.

All i know is tomorrow... CAYE CAULKER (we're just a bit excited..). The weather has been a bit dodgey so far, but hopefully we'll be blessed with another sunny day.

So until Texas, adios, sianara, and we'll see you on the other side.

PS- I have no idea how to spell adios or Sianara


  1. Cody, great to catch up on what's happening. Good on you guys! How many bookcases did you build and for whom? Canoe race is La Ruta Maya. You spelled adios right and the Japanese -- it's sayonara. Have a great time on the caye -- you'll love it. Safe home!

  2. Would love to see a photo of the safety lights. Are they using the tables at all? Will each class get a bookcase? So proud of all the wonderful work you guys are doing. I'm sure you've touched many hearts. Thank you for your wonderful blog updates Cody. You've really got a gift for story-telling. I can't wait to see your photo's!
