Thanksgiving in Belize

On Thursday, we joined with some other PCVs and celebrated Thanksgiving with a delicious turkey day feast with all the favorites.

Nicole hosted with members of her family who were in country to visit her. Other PCVs joining in the Belize City celebration include Johnny, Scott, Eric, Todd and Ashli. We also enjoyed the company of some of Nicole's co-workers and have a nice evening of great food and hanging out.

We took pictures of Nicole's fabulous Thanksgiving set-up and our lovely meal. It was so nice to have some comfort foods from home - we definitely ate well thanks to everyone's hard work.

Dinner was just delicious! Look at all the great choices

Our contribution was a chocolate cake topped with caramel and crushed m&m's - despite some challenges with an oven that does not have a temperature dial and seems to only go as low as 375, it still managed to come out moist and delicious!!!

We hope your Thanksgiving was also an enjoyable one and are excited now that the holiday season is in full swing - we love this time of year. The Christmas music has been playing in some stores around the city and now we will hear it everywhere as Belizeans get into the holiday spirit. We have learned a lot about ways in which Belizeans (particularly here in the city) prepare for Christmas, with home redecorations or renovations, making black cake and visiting each other, it is really a festive and exciting time of year.

Happy Thanksgiving guys! It looks like you all are having a great time down in Belize. I will have to send you a little care package soon. I still have those books for you guys. I think that Ginnie said to mail them to her school. You also mentioned a company that might help with the mailing costs. If you have any info on that, I will get those books inthe mail to you as soon as I can. Keep enjoying your journey! - Suzanne
