You never know where tweeting a link to someone will get you. In this case it ended up with a spotlight interview with Belizean writer Frank Palacio after he emailed to thank me for helping promote his book.

1. Three things/places you would recommend people see do or eat when they travel to Belize. People should take a guided tour of Belize city and look at the historic, British Colonial Buildings, The princess Casino/fort George area of Belize is beautiful. People should go bird watching (check with the Belize Audubon Society for the best locations) and take the tour of the caves via inner tube. My fave Belizean cuisine include the Conch soup which comes with fries , seafood, and Garifuna cuisine.

...

4. My hobbies are playing drums kit, Garifuna drums, singing, roller skating, reading, photography and Facebook, traveling, and corresponding with people from other countries.

...

8. I was born in Punta Gorda Town, Belize. My family moved to Belize City when I was about five years old. My dad was a teacher and my mom was a home maker and I have six siblings.

...

Finally I am pleased that as a Belizean I have written a book that is one of the first and the best of it’s kind, “Facebook Education,” and every Belizean and anyone who loves Facebook can appreciate it. I am grateful to my life’s partner, Glendarice Palacio, my wife of 26 years who has been a constant source of strength, inspiration, and support for me along with my wonderful children, Victoria and Jeremy who have allowed me to be free to be creative and to pursue my writing career.

Thanks Laurie for this opportunity and for the work that you are doing to promote Belize and Belizeans to show the world what our country has to offer.
