Food in Belize: Snapshots

Yesterday I mentioned on my Facebook Page that my time in Belize is winding down, and I asked my loyal readers what they’d like to see as a next post. Those who responded said “more food photos!”

I have a lot more of these to share but until I go home and sort through my hard drive of over 20,000 photos, they will hopefully suffice!

My favorite Belizean foods are too many to list, but I’ve become addicted to: fresh watermelon juice, fry jacks and lobster ceviche.
