    So much going on…it’s almost hard to track. I love that picture of the guys in Orange…where’d you find that gem?

      Apparently Belize Central Prison is run by Kolbe Foundation, a private foundation with a religious slant that was founded by a concerned group of … wait for it …. Rotary Club members in Belize City in 2002. It is all here: http://kolbe.bz/

    I’m glad the police came down hard on the drug traffickers in San Pedro, but a little sad, also. I bought on the island because it felt safe and comfortable. I spend a lot of time down there alone. Please tell me it is still that way, Bob…

    I do think it is safe, Miranda. The recent violence and arrests were focused on a single area and group of people. There is always a danger in gang violence spilling out into public places but that us rarity here. Ypu should feel as safe as you always have.

      Thanks, Bob. I feel a lot better. Now are we safe fro the sargasso? I heard it’s really stinking the place up.

    Sargassum seems to be on the way out. And, yeah, it sure does stink. This week, for the first time, the guys cleaning up the beaches seem to have caught a break and are actually staying ahead of the stuff. I took a bike ride up north a few days ago and the amount of seaweed being hauled off off the beaches there was staggering. One resort was using a front-end loader. Just in time for the Easter rush!

      Nothing is more boring than a guy who repeats the same stories over and over again. I felt like I was becoming that guy, Debbie. I’m planning to write more and shorter bits in the future. Um, after the opus that I just published. Thanks very much for asking!
