Johnny Cakes

The people here are amazing, every one is treated as if family. The locals are beginning to recognize us as the teachers and have been very welcoming. In fact, one of the teachers at the high school, Mr. Kelly, invited us to visit his home for dinner. Mr. Kelly is a high school science teacher and his wife Odelia is the principal at Ambergris Caye Elementary. For dinner they made us Johnny Cakes that were stuffed with ham and cheese, as well as beans. The Johnny Cakes reminded me of pancakes, they were a sweet biscuit and were very delicious. It was nice to see where the 'average' Belizean lives and their life style. It is really wonderful to see how they treat us like one of their own.

I think we all enjoyed our Johnny Cake dinner!
