You might be surprised (and maybe a bit freaked out) to see sunburned white settlers dressed in eighteenth century clothing riding horse carts through the green Belizean countryside. They are Mennonites, a Christian people living a strict life untouched by the modern world, who immigrated to Belize and now seem to feed the whole nation with their dairy and agriculture products. In isolated areas, they turn the jungle into "The little house on the prairie", but with palms. It is wonderfully weird and a fascinating contrast to the else easy-going-dreadlocks-swinging-reggae-listening part of Belize. The Mennonites are surprisingly friendly, though a bit reserved, and you are welcome to travel through their farmlands - but don't expect them to line up for group photos.
