Corozal Town, Belize
How about some fresh tortilla’s? I stumbled across this tiny little shop out on my morning walk in Corozal, Belize. I was peeking inside from the street and was waved in to look around by a curious man working inside. He showed me around and I could not spell his name to save my life. My first feeling was how so hot it was inside though with the doors wide open. Probably about 20 degrees above the outdoor temperature of 80 degrees. Local Belizeans were working away glancing at me with smiles wondering who this gringo was? It was just before Christmas and it was busy. Machines were old and noisy but the tortilla’s were warm and fresh as I was given a few to sample. Tortilla’s are staple here like bread for Canadians and they were being pumped out by the 1000’s. Was quite an operation and enjoyed my little unexpected tour. So if you’re in town, drop in and tell them Tommy Traveler sent you. Like they’ll remember!
