11-19-2019 Garifuna Settlement Day in Hopkins

Even after staying up really late partying with friends the night before, Cara got up early to watch the Yurumein, which is the
reenactment of the Garinagu people arriving on the shores of Belize.

It was at the public dock, and lots of people gathered to sing and watch.

The first boat coming in to land.

The people land and ask to make Belize their home. 

The Garinagu are turned away twice.

Finally, after the third landing and request, they are allowed to stay.

There is a big procession with drumming and singing all the way to the church.

11-13-2019 Return to Belize

We left Indianapolis just a couple of days too late, because we endured the first snow, and it was seven degrees (Farenheit)
the morrning we left.

The view from our "hopper" flight from Belize City to Dangriga. Ahhhh, this looks much more appealing.

We're happy to be back in Belize!
