Towards the end of my time in Belize I promised to answer whatever questions were asked about me and/or my whole Belize experience. I answered Hani’s question almost immediately and now I shall answer a few more:
A. Wahu asked:
What has been the most exciting and enjoyable time spent in Belize. Not the work which l have read that you have enjoyed if it is x-rated then we can go the funkytown.
Attending both the Dangriga and Hopkins Punta Fest was the most exciting and enjoyable experience. The Dangriga Punta Fest qualifies as enjoyable because it lasted all night. I don’t think I have ever danced while watching the sunrise. Two words made the Hopkins Punta Fest exciting – Aurelio Martinez. What’s so exciting about Aurelio? That definitely counts as X-rated.
Have your locs grown faster ama slower?
It is hard to tell for two reasons. When I first started locking my hair, I bleached and dyed it. Over the years the dyed section of my locks began to weaken and the ends started to break and unlock. I have been scared of putting a pair of scissors to my locks but I realised I had no choice. I think it was about October time when I got the courage to cut about an inch and a half off the ends. This has made it difficult to assess rate of growth. Secondly, one of the main ways I can tell how quickly my hair grows is by measuring the length of time between each re-twist; that is when the new unlocked growth gets messy. In England I would re-twist every 3-4 weeks. While in Belize the humidty meant that my hair needed re-twisting every week!
Any new or different fragrances there?
I am not sure if you meant new fragrances in Belize or in general. Either way…I have no idea. All I know is that I had planned to buy D&G’s Light Blue (my new favourite) on the way to Belize but managed to convince myself that the full bottle of CK Contradiction, the half bottle of Cabotine (Kaki – I took that picture just for you ) and the near empty Kenzo Flowers would be enough!!
Cabotine is a perfume I have used since I was 13. It was my first ever perfume and I don’t use it anymore – I just carry it around for sentimental reasons. Contradiction is a perfume that I used to like but still receive as birthday and christmas present from a few people. I only packed it out of guilt; and it came back just as full and has now joined the other 3 full bottles!. Kenzo was the only perfume I like and use on a regular basis – it didn’t last a month! So for the first time in my life I was stuck without perfume. Thankfully the need to wear repellent meant that I could get by without perfume.
That’s it for now. I shall answer the other questions soon. If anyone else has any other questions…now is the time to ask. I will answer anything and everything.
