Just another typical day of my life .. coming to an end. It’s late and I’ve been wanting to post yesterday already .. or the day before? As always something else was keeping me from it.. today it was the chance of a ride to the neighboring country Guatemala.
We just crossed the border and stayed in Melchore for a couple hours mainly to do some shopping. Until today I didn’t even know that almost everyone in that town accepts Belizean money and it’s not even necessary to change!
Taking a little toddler girl along was tiresome: to always watch that she doesn’t disappear between clothes and people. My main focus was on her all the time .. so much that I left a bag with new clothes in the restroom. How could I? As soon as I discovered it I rushed back ..and luckily it was still there 😇😅
Being a Mom and shopping .. haha, there’s all this lists from everyone else in my head. Searching to find something for everyone. Hoping you made the right choices for them. Of course you don’t always get it right. There’s a little disappointed girl tonight that had expected I would have brought her something else…
Walking around and shopping makes hungry .. and so we choose a little roadside restaurant to have some pupusas. Having their origin in El Salvador they’re very common also in the neighboring countries- like Guatemala. It’s a thick corn tortilla filled with cheese, beans or other combinations; served with tomato sauce and a coleslaw. I’ve never had so cheesy ones as today!
It’s late now.. we made it back home alright and I’m really exhausted, but I didn’t want to end this day (there’s still a few minutes of it left) 😉 without at least a short post☺
