Corozal College Students come to Mahahual

 

Some students from Corozal, Belize here for the day on the beach.

We had a cruise ship here yesterday, The Getaway, which is unusual for a Friday.  In fact, we had three ships in town this past week, which is the most we have ever had during the summer since I have been here.

I was sitting on the malecon, and I looked up and I saw about 20 or 30 young students coming to the beach.  I noticed they were all of different colors, some black and some hispanic, and I thought to myself, they got to be from Belize.  As soon as heard a couple of them speak Creole, I knew I was right.

They all got bikes and places on the beach, and they trolled up and down the malecon having a good time.  I looked, and I thought I recognized a couple of them, so I went up to talk to them.  Come to find out, they were all Corozal College students here on vacation after they had graduated, I think on Thursday.

Two of them I remember from the neighborhood where I used to live in Corozal, about five years ago.  They all knew my next door neighbor Yada, and her daughter Diane.  I talked to them for a while about Corozal and about the village, and where I used to go eat and hang out there.  From what I can tell from talking to them, Corozal has not changed much.  We knew a lot of the same people, and we talked about that for a while.

They only stayed for the day, and then hopped back on the bus back to Belize.  I am noticing more and more Belizeans showing up on the weekend here for vacation this summer, more than I have seen since I have been here.  For a lot of the students it was their first time here, and they loved the beach.

I think we be seeing more and more Belizeans coming to Mahahual this summer to enjoy Mahahual’s beaches.  Belizeans are very nice people, and all the students I talked to yesterday were cordial and very polite.

Thanks for reading,
