They've gone through the local advertising rigamarole and haven't found the right candidate. We're a little leery of getting down there and our papers aren't in order or some other nonsense and be required to fix it ourselves with no knowlege of the process. How do we know if it's done right? What are the consequenses if it isn't? We spent about a week quizzing employers and we heard a ton of different stuff so we would love to see something published by the government of Belize, make sure our butts are covered. Thanks for supplying the website! It will help.
The people who want to hire us seem to think that we'll help their business and I'm not going to argue with that. The "American way" of doing things probably won't fly when dealing with Belizean merchants and tradespeople but we're flexible and will learn to adjust our expectations.
Unfortunately, most American tourists won't have the time or inclination during their stay to make that adjustment and will expect their leaky toilet or jet-powered AC to be repaired when they expect it to be. Tourist expectations are not being met in this circumstance so we've been asked to help.
Right or wrong as this idea may be, we're thrilled to have the opportunity to live and work in a place we've fallen in love with.
If all goes well, we'll be back down there mid-december, enjoying San Pedro some more.
