By Zoila Palma: U.S. Embassy’s Chargé d’Affaires Keith Gilges is ending his tour in Belize and says he is taking along those unique Belizean experiences.
Gilges close interaction with Belizeans led him to learn a few creole words including ‘Good mawning’ and perhaps, the most read sign in Belmopan, “Dis da fi wi chikin”.
Gilges says that his experience in Belize has been ‘spectacular’, from eating rice and beans at the market to Hudut in Dangriga and early morning Belizean fry jacks at the U.S. Embassy’s housing compound.
“Every part of the experience here has been spectacular….I’ll have to give a shout out to the woman that works here at this residence, Stephanie Crawford who makes amazing food all the time, a lot of it Belizean, so I get freshly fried fry jacks in the morning. I get amazing food here,” Gilges shared.
Gilges said that one of his most memorable experiences was when he was in Dangriga for Garifuna Settlement Day and got hudut at Grace’s kitchen.
“It has been the honor of my lifetime so far to have this opportunity to serve,” Gilges added.
Gilges said that the next time we see him in Belize, he will be in shorts and a T-shirt.
BBN joins in extending well wishes to Gilges on his future endeavors.
