To learn how Belize City and, in particular, San Pedro were from 1978-1988 and how I knew, visit So you\'ve come to the tropics? .

An excerpt:
In those days, there was a narrow, low-roofed passageway up to the 2nd floor of the then decrepit Pazlow Building (main courthouse) in Belize City.

Half way up at a particularly low spot, there was a sign saying, "Mind Your Head" - not a bad piece of advice for anyone living in Belize in those days.

Mervino,
After reading your tales, I can't think of one good reason that you don't publish the whole enchilada in a book form!! It's an awesome tale and who but you to tell it the right way?!!

Mervino,
Loved your website! Especially the photos cir. 1959. It must have been an even better place to visit back then? You must be overwhelmed with the progress & changes over the years? Did you ever think San Pedro would be a thriving, hustle & bustling tourist town? I love it as it is now, but would have loved to have seen it back then. Thanks a lot,
Kris
