Sunshine & Mangoes

Our mango tower on the verandah
These past few days the weather has been typically tropical with glorious sunshine. We've been stocking up on fresh food and water and have been doing lots of lounging around before we start any real sightseeing.

To get our provisions, we drove north to Dangriga, a Garifuna town, to the market there. A neighbor of ours asked us to pick up a couple of things for him. We successfully found one of the items, but for today at least, there is no cottage cheese in Hopkins Village or Dangriga!

One point already worthy of note is that it is now mango season here in Belize and we have our first batch of freshly picked specimens to eat our way through. I ate one just before writing this - delicious!
