Week Eight

Happy Leap Year.

I just have to say, first of all, it’s hot. Thursday is supposed to be 97 degrees, and they still make me heat my water in the morning because of a cough, which not only means I am bathing in hot water on hot days, but also it means I have been bathing out of a bucket for about a month now.

That said, here are some pics of class this week. Note the hot-pink Umbros, circa 1994. It may appear as though I am teaching them to fight. Rest assured, I am not. We are acting out fighting scenarios.

This one is blurry, but I love it because everyone looks really scared of the invisible tomatoes I am pretending to throw at the boys who fell down in the pretend mud.

All week, we have been playing volleyball in the afternoons to get ready for the volleyball tournament on the 13th. For some reason, they kept putting me on the boys team. I need to explore that.

On Friday I went to Old Belize with Inez and had the best time. Besides meeting a famous Jamaican artist- I have no idea who he was, but the pic is nice- we got the Belizean rate, which is a milestone for me, free beach passes, went through the museum and learned the history of Mayans, Garifunda, Carib Pirates, British Hondurans, Chickle farmers and buckaneers. We even got to eat REAL chickle. Then we sat by the Caribbean and ate a huge plate of chicken Pirate nachos. I ordered them with an “Arrrrgggg!” and Inez hid behind the menu.

  1. I miss listening to calm music and grilling out with you. It’s 60s in SC- so this weather makes me miss those times. Hope you get to visit this year. Also, I love the pics of the Marina.

  2. Itemized shopping lists & Antonia in a scarf and mittens — both are priceless!

    I can’t believe it is even time for you to start thinking about coming home.

    Now, let’s repeat – Brooke is an adult. Brooke is a female. Why is it that you are just seen as the ultimate teenager when you are obviously so wise!
