This weekend I went farther up north of Belize, to the town and district of Orange Walk. Soon after I checked into my hotel on Saturday afternoon, I went to talk to the receptionist to find out what time she thought I should head over to the stadium for the annual town fiesta.
Within a couple of minutes of chatting with her, I heard drums in the distance. I rushed outside, leaving in half-conversation. I looked left and in the distance were two big marching bands heading my way. They were walking through town to promote and create buzz for the big annual Orange Walk fair or Fiestarama that very weekend.
