Finding Myself in Belize

Have you ever felt a connection to a place you've never traveled?  Ever since I can remember, I've been infactuated with Latin America and the Carribbean.  I've wanted to travel there so long, for reasons I can't begin to explain.  For years I've jokingly claimed to be an island girl at heart.

Today, I find myself in Belize, a small country nestled on the eastern shores of Central America.  As soon as the airplane passed the Florida Keys and Cuba, I felt something in my heart that at this time I can't fully express in words.  Even the sign greeting us at the airplane landing area on the island of San Pedro said, "Welcome Home."

It's not that I necessarily feel an ancestral connection to Belize or its people, but its something special in being surrounded in a sea of brown.

I welcome this experience to learn more about the culture of Belize and to do my part in sharing my love of education with our partners in education.

Finding Myself,
