After getting there and settling in for a couple days I stopped at one point and realized that I felt like I was right where God wanted me to be. I was living life. With a dear friend. In a beautiful place. And enjoying some refreshment! What a great time it was!
Here’s my bed in Amber’s house, complete with Mr. Bear hanging out. (He loves traveling to foreign countries just as much as I do!) The pink cover is a sarong that I got when I went to Belize with my church as a senior in high school. It was fun to bring it back to its place of origin!
Here’s Amber hard at work while giving me a face about taking a picture. I told her the peeps here wanted to see her in action!

My first Friday we took the little bus (called the Tzuhl bus) into the closest town, Corozal. Corozal is right on the Corozal bay and is about 8 miles from Patchakan. But with the bumpy roads and many stops the ride takes about 25 minutes. We had lunch at a fun place, RD’s. I got a Sprite and Amber got a Pineapple Fanta. I quickly learned that Pineapple Fanta is the best drink ever and from then on that’s what I got when we went out to eat!
