Self-Care Challenge (Day 21): Meeting New People

Belize, Barbie
Stacy and Barbie

Another fun thing about travel is that you get to meet some really great people.

We met Barbie unexpectedly after having trouble with our golf cart one afternoon. The moment she noticed that we needed help she yelled, “That’s my brother-in-law’s company; I’m calling him right now.”

Within minutes, he and his crew showed up to begin working on it, and by the time we had finished eating lunch at the cafe next door, it was ready to go. Unbelievable! (or unBELIZEable, depending on your style of humor.)

As we were talking with Barbie I noticed she was holding what appeared to be a crochet project, so I asked her what she was making. The next thing I knew I was standing in her 6’ x 6’ home (which I assume also doubled as her storefront), and she was showing me her latest crochet pieces.

It makes me smile because although our cultures may be slightly different, at our core we share many similarities.
