Oh Hey There, Dry Season

So…Belize has officially entered the “dry season,” and everyone warned me that the transition from April to May is the hottest time of the year, but I didn’t believe them. Until this week. Yesterday had a heat index of 113˚, today I sweat in places I didn’t even know had pores (the backs of my ears and tops of my feet?) and I just got a text from Rhondine warning that tomorrow’s heat index is going to reach 126˚! 126 DEGREES?! You could cook food in 126 DEGREES!

All this heat makes studying for my finals…or moving in general…seem like an impossible task. I can’t even bring myself to eat anything more than mangos (the dry season brought mango season with it!!!!) and several nalgenes of water each day because I would rather dance around in a small dark room filled with sharp objects than even think of cooking in this heat.

Who would have ever thought that Virginia’s humid summers could be refreshing?


And Mapache eats gets the Mangoes!
