The day starts early and with the first sun rays and the birds’ chirp, the last few remainders of the night’s magic fly away. It’s time to prepare breakfast, there’s plenty of hungry mouths waiting to be fed. She left the masa resting during the night, covered by a cloth, and now it’s time to start moulding it into […]

On the Western Highway, between Belize City and Belmopan and a few miles after Belize Zoo, there’s a little haven “where friends meet”.
