It was Sunday night in Punta Gorda, Belize. And we had driven by almost every restaurant in town. And they were all closed. Except for Gorimers. We hadn't eaten there yet. Even though the tourist book mentioned it as having some of the best food in P.G. Well, it was now or never.
Nobody else was there. But in Belize that doesn't mean anything. The owner turned out to be an amazing character. A Rastafarian originally from St. Lucia. He had a huge pile of dread locks that he tried to keep coiled up in a big hat. But it was so heavy he kept having to pull it up. And he talked with us for a long time after our meal. It turned out to be one of those vacation memories that you treasure. He didn't serve alcohol. And we just happened to have Flor # 5 in our back pack. Hmmm. Strange? Well, not for us. It was all, "No problem man" for us to serve ourselves with our own liquor. He brought out a weird juice concoction that he harvested from his own tree to mix it with. He said he was one of the only people who had figured out how to make it palatable. Ha! He called it Blengie juice. I think.
The veggie lasagna
The Garlic Shrimp
The food wasn't my favorite taste from P.G. But it was still very tasty. And with the best kind of life seasoning, life enriching after taste.
Flor de Cana # 5 for Random 5 Friday
1) Flor # 5 keeps vacation memories alive.
2) Flor # 4. Drink too much and you'll end up on the floor.
3) Flor # 7. Do they make an eleven?
4) Flor # 18. Savour it with ice and don't serve it to any teens.
5) Flor # 21. You've eluded me. But you sure sound fun!
