So the whole work week was a little bit like today. Very low key. EXCEPT
- We passed our halfway point! As of May 3, we have been here 406 days, and we have 405 to go!
- There was a murder very close to our house on Thursday night. Like a "professional" hit with seven shots in this one guy. They drove up, jumped out of the car, shot the guy and drove away. I was standing right next door to where it happened less than five minutes before. Thankfully, this is not typical of Dangriga (not that we don't have a knifing or rape now and again). Generally it's a pretty peaceful town. Here's a link to the story. Enjoy the Kriol! http://edition.channel5belize.com/archives/70289 AND here http://www.lovefm.com/local_news.php?item=230
- I finished the first chapter for the CHW training manual - THREE DAYS EARLY.
Those were the highlights. Steve and I also went over to Hopkins for the grand opening of the Sandy Beach Restaurant yesterday. It's going to be a success, I'm sure. They'll really get going when they get their liquor license!
Sorry, that's all there is. Here are some pictures:
These are some that I painted for the restaurant.
