Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry On Top

Punta Gorda, Belize
Location: Punta Gorda, Belize

I just came back from a holiday in Punta Gorda, Belize. It was a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Needless to say, I had a great time. Belize is a small country in Central America known for its beauty and innate charm.

Taking drum lessons from Ronald McDonald at his school was the cherry on top. He helped me discover the rhythm in me.

Ronald is a member of the Garifuna, one of the five major ethnic groups in Belize. He said that his ancestors originated from Western Africa, but he was quick to point out that they were free men. It happened that, when their ship sank during a storm, their European masters drowned. This allowed the survivors to escape to the hinterlands and build their own settlements.
