SO this week me and my comp had to go to Belize City for my comp to get his work permit. And so we were on the bus and its about a 3 and a half hour bus ride. We were about half way through and then this guy gets on the bus who has like 5 huge dreads who is completely crazy. He got on the bus and I was sitting near the back of the bus. He sits in the very back and starts just talking. he is talking creole btw which is not English its a broken English that is very hard to understand sometimes and it literally a different language. But this guy after about 20 min. taps me on the back and so I turn around and ask him whats up. he picked up a rock off the floor of the bus and said "this is my God".
I kinda laughed a little and said that's cool and turned around cause I didn't know really what else to say. Then he tapped me on the back again and he just started going off about all sorts of stuff, like he wasn't angry he just wanted to talk to me and tell me what some of his beliefs were. So I was alright with that so I just kinda listened. As I listened more and more I started being able to understand more of what this guy was saying. It was really cool to listen to this guy talk. Every once in a while I would say something back to him but mainly I just listened. Then I gave him a fist bump because he was getting off the bus. But it was super cool.
So now I wanna explain a little bit about where creole came from. This is how it was explained to me by some people living here. Apparently years ago when their was slavery the black people started talking differently so that their slave masters could not understand them. So the slaves made up creole so that then could communicate and plan to escape and things like that. And now everyone here in Belize talks da creole. Its really cool. I love it. I am picking up some of it and always ask people to tell me how to say things in creole. A lot of the words are the same as English its just like a broken English.
But anyways I love you guys. Nothing else too special to report on this week I am just gonna keep going. I hope u all have a wonderful week!
