|It was a beautiful day so I (Cara) took Gabby on a tour of Hopkins, the village in which we currently live. This is the |
welcome mural (in Garifuna, the language of the local culture) on a wall at the main junction in the village.
|Herbal Healers is a cute little place right behind the school in Hopkins.|
|Love the vibe here!|
|It was a hot day so we opted for the two iced teas: Hibiscus, and Lime Leaf & Lemongrass (the latter being the favorite of |
both of us).

|Gabby does love the hammocks|

|Gabby got to sit on a swing at the bar there.|
|Pretty fountain at Belizean Dreams resort|
|That night we went to Windschief Bar, our favorite Friday night hangout. We played lots of foosball and had a blast!|
|My friend, Jon, convinced us to try the drink he created here - it's called a White Owl, and it's|
really pretty good! I bet he's the one that called for these fancy drink stirrers as well.
