I did find finished counter tops in the kitchen, a finished bathroom floor, a fancy new grill to cook on.... and 6 new baby chickens!!
2 yellows and 4 blacks
I can't name these ones because I'm not allowed to get attached... When they're old enough we'll have to sell them and everyone here knows that I'll probably cry if I start picking them up and petting them now and have to give them up in a few months. I'm doing my best to ignore them.... but I do have a favorite...
I call him "Fluffy." Don't tell anyone.
I don't know what that tall structure is for
and a camel.
I normally avoid any circus that uses animals in their show, but I was curious about this one, run by Boletos (I can't find any info about them online.) I would have gone yesterday to check it out, but it's been raining here all night and all morning every day since Thursday. We get a few hours of sunshine in the afternoon, but not enough to dry up the driveway enough to get down it safely.
Have any of my Belizean readers ever gone to a Boletos Circus before? I want to know what kind of acts they have.... tight rope walkers, jugglers, clowns, acrobats?? Tell me all about it!
It was raining all morning, as I mentioned, but I just went outside and took this clear picture of Victoria's Peak we have while the sun is shining.
a bit cloudy, but that's the highest peak in the country, as seen from my home on Overlook Farms
Additional, random thoughts:
As much as I love riding the bus on a bright, sunny day here in Belize, I'm terrified to get on one in the rain
I have to remember my interview with immigration on June 7th. I never pay attention to the day/date, so I have to keep reminding myself to check the calendar every single day. I think it's next Thursday
Chickens really do sound like dinosaurs
I wonder if the Mango Festival or the circus got cancelled this weekend
I'm bummed that the rain ruined my San Pedro trip tomorrow
This isn't even the rainy season yet, what the hell? I wonder if the Earth really will flood during this new age of Aquarius we're going into
How hard it DIY plumbing? Could I learn to install gutters and pipes and stuff myself? I really, reeeaally want my own shower.
