My friend and Spanish teacher and fellow traveler and own personal San Pedro tour guide Ludy with Santa at an ice cream shop in San Pedro. Above is Ludy’s niece at her brother’s home. Much more to come on the San Pedro trip in the next few blog post so stay tuned here at jitterbuggingforjesus.com in the holiday days ahead as we head to Corozal on the Belize/Mexico for Christmas week with more of her family in a north Belizean village on Christmas Day.
While everyone in Western Belize where I live was preparing for the Mayan non-end of the world, my friend and Spanish teacher “Ludy” accompanied me to the popular Caribbean resort isle of San Pedro for a three-day weekend. (Click here for more on San Pedro, or go to “Taco Girl’s” blog here; she has San Pedro covered like a blanket, that girl.)
Ludy, who is from the Cayo area where I live in the far western mainland of Belize, worked at San Pedro for seven years. She started as a dishwasher in a bar and grill before she found work and good pay, by Belizean standards, as a housecleaner at the high-doller resorts of San Pedro.
So here’s some snaps of the paradise that is San Pedro, and some snaps as well of Ludy’s family and friends and their homes.
