Photographer's Note

Belize, boat from Belize City to Caye Caulker. These are German Mennonites, members of one of many such communities scattered around Western Hemisphere. They emigrated in 18th and 19th century from poor Germany and because of strong respect for tradition and religious hermetism, they preserved old customs, ways of dressing ( a bit weird for tropical climate ) and language as it was spoken in Germany more than hundred years ago
