Living in Belize

Bob Bounahra Day


I had a busy Wednesday – went to town for a couple of errands then I headed to Healthy Belize for 11:30. I was booked in to see Rachelle Wintzen for an irodology appointment. [A write up on my experience coming soon – I  have to process it all before I can blog it.]

On my way home I stopped by Pedro’s to take pics of Maureen’s cooking. Pedro was hosting a special lunch for guest of honor Bob Bounahra and invited the regular San Pedro poker players. He event went shopping in Belize City  for Maureen  so she could  cook roast with Yorkshire pudding and the works. Her cooking looked delicious as always.

In honor of my Bob Bounahra Day post I went and pulled links I have been posting on tacogirl facebook page about the journey of Bob Bounahra as he made it to the final table for World Series of Poker. It has been very exciting watching Bob claim his place in the November nine proudly wearing his Belize baseball cap.

    I just put that in as a front page pic since all the others food pics were too close to use Emily – also owner of GC is a good friend of Pedro and a reg poker player. What most people do not know is for normal pictures my blog takes a finger width off the top and the bottom, so I have to shoot specifically with that in mind – either doing wide shots or far enough away shots to cover space that will get automatically chopped off.

    I’m just a little confused about how the photo of Grand Caribe made the top of this post. 🙂 The food looks great, tho!
