    Vorbereitungen treffen in Hopkins

    May 18, 2018 in Belize ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Nach den vielen Abenteuern, die wir in den letzten Wochen erlebt haben, waren wir reif für die Insel. Wir sind bei unserer Recherche auf das Glovers Atoll „Resort“ gestoßen, eine Privatinsel mit ein paar einfachen Hütten, weder fließend Wasser noch Strom. Genau richtig, um sich wie Robinson Crusoe zu fühlen. Sonntag sollte es losgehen und am darauffolgenden Samstag wieder zurück. Der Inselaufenthalt musste gut geplant werden, denn dort gab es keinen Supermarkt. Wir mussten alles vorher einkaufen.
    Dazu war unser kurzer Aufenthalt in Hopkins gedacht, ein kleines Garifuna-Dorf an der Küste von Belize. Als wir alle Einkäufe erledigt hatten, blieb sogar noch etwas Zeit, um in den Hängematten auf unserer Terrasse die Aussicht zu genießen und das Dörfchen kennenzulernen.
    Außerdem konnte ich endlich das Foto schießen, was ich die ganze Reise über vor hatte. Ich nenne es: „Die Früchte hier sind so lecker, da könnt ich mich reinsetzen“ 🍍🍉😋

    Drumming Session mit Jabbar

    June 2, 2018 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Zurück im Garifuna-Dorf Hopkins wollten wir noch das Trommeln lernen (zumindest einmal ausprobieren 😊). Also buchten wir uns bei der besten Schule des Landes eine Stunde bei dem Drummer Jabbar.
    Am Abend konnten wir im Dorf noch den Profis lauschen und den Garifuna-Mädels beim Tanzen zusehen.

    Back to the Mainland

    March 10, 2016 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Tobacco Caye was good to us, but we were running out of food and felt like we had seen a good sampling of sealife in the surrounding reef, so we got on a boat back to Dangriga and switched back to bike mode. Our friends from the Nebraska field course came ashore on the next boat so we got to show off our loaded bikes and get a picture together. We gave Dangriga another chance and enjoyed seeing the town sunny and alive on a Thursday morning. After exploring the streets and the town market we bought some relatively cheap and delicious food from the vendors that we had missed when we arrived on Sunday, then rolled on. The road even seemed better as we pedalled out of Dangriga with the wind at our backs. A short ride past more orange orchards got us to the quiet town of Hopkins. We quickly felt at home here with lots of friendly folks in the streets. We managed to buy gasoline for our stove from a family "gas station", and set up our tent beside a beach bar for the night.Read more
