    Day 2- Arrival in Belize

    July 15, 2017 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Today was such an experience. We landed in Belize airport early this morning and went through customs. We hopped on a bus that took us on a 7 hour drive. The weather was really humid and muggy, but the bus driver was going so fast that there was a nice breeze all the way down. We made a bathroom stop and were actually there for quite a while. We also made a stop for lunch at this place and the prices were pretty decent and the food was tasty. I got the special which was chicken with rice and beans. I tried the plantain but I really didnt care for it. The pineapple juice that we ordered was delicious! After an another hour of driving we made our way to the Machacha camp and the fun begun. We were introduced to people and then were told our room assignments. I was put into a cabin Called Macaw.  I took a bed close to the door and the fan! It was so hot and muggy, I couldn't stop sweating. We made our way down for briefing and I was told I was going to be a cabin counselor. My partners come from Muerietta and are named Nicole and Maddie. We were given 2 shirts each which are all we can wear apparently. Then we took a tour of the camp with a guy named Erikson. We had some free time after the tour and Brittney and Vic and I went to shower. We were really sketched about the cold 2 minute showers and so we planned out exactly how it would work. 15 sec water, then lather, rinse, lather, rinse. It was sooooooooooo nice and I wish it was longer. Following the shower we headed to dinner, im not really sure what we ate but it was good. Then we were broken up into our groups and went over duties. After the meeting ended all the girls came to my cabin and we had Nutella and almonds yum! We talked and then went looking for bugs in other peoples cabins. Great day! Looking forward to tomorrow!!Read more
