Just returned from 12 of the most exhilarating days my husband and I have spent in years. We started out at the Great House in Belize City, went to the Cayo and explored Santa Elana and San Ignacio, went to Tikal, climbed caves and then went to AC. Looked up Daniel and went to Lamani, snorkeled the reef, ate more variations of beans and rice and coconut rice than I knew existed! Drank lots of Beliken and rum.
Came home and it was snowing and 15degrees. This morning it was 7! But, the one thing that Joe and I talk about that sticks out in our minds is the children! We have not seen kids with such big smiles in years! They run and play, small children and older alike, and they are not afraid! They are friendly and happy. They have a trust in us that the kids in the US are not allowed to have and I haven't seen that in the faces of children for years. For that smile alone, I will go back!
