Week one is already half way over and it’s amazing how much I’ve learned and how much hands on experience I’ve gained already. Culture shock is a real thing. Luckily I’m in a country that accepts US dollars and speaks good English.They fruits from the market have changed my life, I’ve never tasted a banana so good. The first couple of days was spent adjusting to the time change, the climate and the overall atmosphere. We’ve gotten to explore San Ignacio travel to Mayan sites, suture on dogs after a spay, do physicals and give vaccinations on horses. We also got to milk a cow and learn the dairy industry here in Belize. It is such a small industry here that the farm we visited was only milking 20 cows. The average pounds per day from his cows was 43 lbs. That’s a large number for such a small operations especially since his heifers are a cross between Brahman and Holsteins. Overall so far I’ve loved exploring and learning new technique’s and how farms in the US different in operations and methods then the farms here in Belize. The hands-on and learning farm operations here have been my favorite thing thus far.
