Back from Belize!...photo dump!

863
Just spent 5 1/2 weeks in Belize, mostly wwoofing, couple weeks traveling around...and on ym return my dreads are suddenly 7 months old!


For those who don't know, I wwoofed for my first time in Belize, which is this organization where you work on an organic farm in exchange for lodging and food. It was a really awesome experience, I loved my fellow farmers and my crazy host...turned into a tough ass jungle lady inbetween the biting flies, GIANT bugs, working hard in really intense heat and humidity and did I mention the bugs?

Island of Flores

...Then I stayed a week on Caye Caulker. This was a funny experience having dreads on this island, which is mostly Rastafarians. EVERYWHERE I went was "Rasta Gal!" "Yo Ras!" "Hey Natty Dread!" etc etc, a lot of the guys had dreads but I was one of maybe two girls...they were all over it, it actually got a bit annoying sometimes, but most of the time it was fun, I got to know more locals through them actually. It was a really funny experience, especially considering that I don't consider myself Rasta. Sorry there are no pics of toher people's dreads, I don't really feel comfortable taking pictures of other people as I wouldn't want it done to me :/

Now onto just hair pictures.My hair changed so muc while I was gone. I was so dirty all the time in the jungle I had my hair up the whole time and never paid attention to it, which continued on to the beach, where my head got a real healthy dose of salt water. I used to be able to tell all my dreads apart by touching them, now they're all kinds of weird, and fun!
