meet the local travel guides - http://www.overlander.tv
This is my entry for the biggest, baddest, bucket list entry.
Exploring the Guatemalan Port City of Livingston.
I meet up with Diana from Antojitos Los Tres Garifunas.
The Garifuna's are one of five cultural groups in Livingston.
They are the descendants of West African slaves shipwrecked on St Vincent, who interbred with the local Carib and Arawak people. When the British took over St Vincent from the French, they exiled the Garifuna. The Garifuna now populate the Belize, Guatemalan and Honduras Caribbean Coast.
I speak with Diana about Guifitti, a medicinal alcoholic tonic made up of sixteen different herbal roots. It is believed to be a 'cure all'.
I also show you the 'ghost hotel' I am staying in that is currently being renovated. As repairs are under way, I'm one of the few guests.
