Oct 11th - It was an excellent lecture and presentation at the Corozal House of Culture by Mexican Historian Manuel Villanueva Enriquez of Chetumal MX, who eloquently spoke on the history of the Caste War and the Mestizo Culture and... the influences in Corozal and Orange Walk which the war played in our Belizean history. I personally learnt that there is so much in common between the people of Corozal and Chetumal. So much family ties. So much in the food we share. What a great lecture. Hats off to the Corozal House of Culture (NICH) and the organizers of COLCHA for bringing this great and important historical event to our doorsteps. If you weren't there then you missed out.
