Carnival has been going on for two nights already. Central Park was covered with sand on Sunday and all of the Wing's benches were covered in plastic. We have participated in Comparsa, the traditional dances, for the last two nights. They are so much fun and absolutely hilarious. Another Comparsa tonight and judging also happens. The kids have been out in hordes, painting, running and screaming. All very good natured. Comparsa and Carnival are old traditions here but are sadly dying out. This festival is very important to a number of local charities as the Comparsas collect money from every home that they visit. I hope that in future years, people will support this wonderful tradition by turning out to watch, participate and contribute. We didn't see many expat faces down there, which was a shame. Belize is full of rich culture and tradition. Being able to live here and get involved in these wonderful things is an absolute privelege as far as we are concerned. Come out and support Comparsa tonight. Be generous. Have a laugh and enjoy!
