Belize Embassy Open House May 5, 2012
The Belize Embassy in the USA was open on Saturday 10am-5pm as part of an annual embassy open house day. Some embassies did quite a bit more than others and I would put Belize in that category. Ambassador Mendez and his wife were greeting people as they came in. I didn't see any other ambassadors doing that all day. Of course, I'm not sure everyone quite realized who he was. When I had started posing for the shot everyone in line was like, "what's going on, who are these people?" Anyway, I met his kids, too, and invited all of them to LOC soon, which they accepted.(!)
The embassy also had lots of tour information for free and Belikin on tap and food goodies for a fee. Also had a DJ playing Belize tunes. It made me anticipate my trip next week with even more interest.
I will be putting the rest of the pictures on flickr later....
