Birthday Wishes

It is the Independence Day countdown here in Belize! The 21st is the big day and Belize is turning 27 years old. I plan to bring the day from tonight by going down town, between the Hawksworth Bridge the police station, and Burn Ave. with the with some friends. We are going downtown and mingles with the throngs of people until about 1 am. I thrive on nights like the nights that we bring in Independence Day in a similar fashion that peole in the US bring in New Years. The crowded streets, the sea of people, and slow traffic. There are speeches, the fireworks, seeing so many people out and about. There is something about it. There are all sorts of people out. Everyone has their own plans



So if you are going to bed early, going out for a while or staying up all night bashing (like some people in Orange Walk do, so I hear), have a happy Independence Day. If you are not from Belize, well, just image all that you are missing out.... no, think about us here as we celebrate 27 years of nationhoodness...

Happy Birthday Belize!

Happy Independence day!! Only 27 years? I thought Belize was older than that. Under whose rule was Belize?

The British my dear lady, with a spot'a tea.

While the majority of the Commonwealth was getting their Independence, years before, we had problems with Guatemala claiming us as their own so Britian stuck around to keep us safe.

When did India get Independence from the Empire?
