Bellize Top 10

Discover here the top 10 reasons why Karl and I love Belize.

10. Exchange Rate - $1 US = $2 Belize making a pretty nice deal.

9. Marie Sharp's Habanero Hot Sauce - Good on every including your morning bagel!

8. Cultural Diversity - Where can you find Garafuna, Menonite, Creol, Chinese, Mayan, Mestizo, and American/European Volunteers in one country?

7. Markets - Fresh local produce for an incredibly cheap price. This I will truly miss.

6. Natural Healing - The breath of knowledge of the local growing plants is incredible and luckily nature has a remedy for everything.

5. Cayes - The islands are gorgeous with white sand and crystal blue waters. What's not to like?

4. Mayan Ruins - We've done our fair share of ruining and are still amazed at their existence.

3. The Jungle - Wicked cool bugs, gigantic trees, natural rememdies around every corner, and a beautiful diversity of birds. And man those leaf cutter ants!

2. Relaxin' - There has been an endless amount of time to read, journal, play cards, and just plain old chill.

Drum roll please...

1. The Volunteers - Not to toot our own horns, but we have been working with an amazing group of hard-working, spirited, and intelligent people from all over the world working together to make this country an even better place.
