Good Mawnin Belize
It's time again For ABC Wednesday. If you aren't participating in ABC Wednesday, you are missing out on a lot of fun. This week the letter is "B". B is for Belize. My favorite place to visit is Belize. Belize is a small country in Central America. Gina and I first went to Belize in 2004 with 15 members of our church to help build a church in San Pedro. Since then we have returned 3 times.
When we are visiting in Belize I love to get up early and watch the sun rise over the ocean. After watching and photographing the sunrise, I like to walk through the town and watch it come to life. Life is hard in Belize, but it's people are so vibrant and full of life. Every morning that I am there I spend a couple of hours just walking through the town and photographing what I see. I get off of the main street and see what the real community is like.
When I get back home I keep up with what is happening in Belize by listening to the LOVE-FM morning show. Each morning they would play the song "Good Mawnin Belize". I really like the song, and on a subsequent visit I was able to find a CD with the song on it. Here is a slideshow of pictures that I have taken in the mornings as San Pedro Belize comes to life.
