The celebration of “Dia de Los Finados” is a long lived tradition in the Maya, Mestizo and the Garifuna cultures. The first and second day of November is traditionally when family members remember and commemorate their deceased loved ones. Over the years, this cultural custom has been forgotten in Belize, and for this reason the Banquitas House of Culture has taken the initiative to revive the tradition. Today’s “Los Finados” celebration merged religion, cultural and authentic traditional cuisine into one area, all remembering the dead …. Coordinator at the BHOC, Cindey Rivero says this year the event is being observed at the Old Piemonte Cemetery.
“We have three alter that we have displayed here and we have different dishes and local sweets and different traditional food that we have and we have the candles, this one in particular is what we use for the kids whereby we have more traditional sweets, el Caldo de pollo just to invite the souls as a celebration of an offering for them then we also have on the other side the altar mayor whereby we also have different traditional foods, sweets and in honor of them, we also have another alter for the lonely souls we have that as well and we have today a new altar for the Maya and that is right at the entrance and it is very traditional and everything that is use there is gotten from our natural environment so today we are having a prayer and we invited the entire community to come and celebrate with us dia de finados or as you may know it Dia de Muertos .”

An Exciting Adventure at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve
A very popular snorkeling and diving site in Belize, the Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a must-visit. Its four zones offer something unique and exciting for every tourist.
The Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley Travel in Belize are two of the most popular snorkeling/diving sites in Belize. This is all thanks to its close proximity to San Pedro, the large
amount of fish life in the Hol Chan cut which is accessible by snorkelers and beginner divers, the diversity of marine life that can be encountered through the park’s four zones, and the novelty and excitement of swimming with big numbers of sting rays and nurse sharks.
The Hol Chan Cut is just 15 minutes south of San Pedro and about 30 minutes north of Caye Caulker. Trips from San Pedro last about half a day, while trips from Caye Caulker which includes a visit to San Pedro last a full day. During the boat ride going to the park, make sure that you keep an eye out for flying fish and jumping rays. Because of the protected status of the area, fish populations have exploded. In waters less than 5 feet deep, large a schools of snappers, groupers, barracuda and jacks are abound.
Belize Reports Improved Third-Quarter Visitor Arrivals
Belize tourism stakeholders are hopeful the country’s strong September tourist arrivals augur for an improved year-end picture. Belize recorded 14,242 overnight visitors in September, a 19.3 percent increase over the same month in 2013 and part of a 6.9 percent increase in the country’s third quarter arrivals from July to September, Belize Tourism Board (BTB) officials reported recently.
In a statement, BTB officials attributed the arrivals surge to a 28.6 percent increase in U.S.-based visitors during that period. American travelers are utilizing improved air links to the country, including direct service from Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, Miami and Dallas, BTB officials said. U.S. residents remain the country’s largest visitor source, accounting for nearly 65 percent of arrivals, said BTB officials.
Belize endured an uncharacteristically flat tourist arrivals performance in the first half of 2015, with 183,210 overnight arrivals from January to June, a 1.5 percent decline from 2014 according to data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO). The BTB officials said the decline narrowed to 0.8 percent within the first seven months of 2015.
Belize exports increase drastically
Belize's exports this September were up by 23.2%, earning the country $36 million, a third of which was from bananas.
Earning $36 million in exports was an increase this year as last September the country earned $29.2 million.
Banana exports grew steadily from January-September with banana sales rising from $72 million in 2014 to $77 million in 2015 (roughly 7%).
Imports for September 2015 were down marginally from $163.6 million last September to $162.1 million this September. Belize's import bill is more than triple the country's export earnings. Merchandise imports for the nine months from January to October 2015 amounted to $1.5 billion.

Tamai has complained of "political mischief" and said police have been providing her with round-the-clock protection.

Jungle warfare: How to survive and fight in extreme environments with the Coldstream Guard
In a dispatch from the Central American country of Belize, David Wells, a news editor at the Western Morning News, joins Westcountry soldiers of the Coldstream Guards for jungle warfare training on Exercise Mayan Warrior.
In sweltering hot, humid temperatures, surrounded by dense jungle vegetation, the first mission of the men and women of the Coldstream Guards is to survive.
It means that in the days before the Coldstreamers steel themselves for an arduous push through what can seem like impenetrable jungle territory, where every step through the thick foliage presents a real risk – where even the flora and fauna of the subtropical forest themselves can be an unwary soldier’s enemy – they must first practise the skills that ordinary civilians take for granted in comfortable lifestyles back home.
Even before they put their battle skills to the test in an exercise to develop their jungle warfare tactics, these soldiers, many of whom are from Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, must initially learn how to use the resources around them to find water, keep themselves fed and fighting fit.
D.C. Made A Change To Its Tax Law, And Caribbean Countries Aren't Happy About It
Faced with outrage from over a dozen otherwise placid Caribbean nations, D.C. officials are backtracking on a plan to openly call out countries it says allow big U.S. businesses to skip out on paying local taxes.
At issue is a change to existing tax law made through the 2016 D.C. budget that took effect last month. Here's what happened.
In 2011, D.C. passed a law requiring combined reporting by large corporations. That means that national corporations with a local presence have to pay D.C. taxes on their combined income, instead of just paying the taxes on the income of the local affiliate alone.
Advocates say combined reporting laws make it harder for big businesses to skip out on taxes by moving money around to states and countries with lower tax rates — "tax havens" in populist parlance. When the change was implemented, the D.C. Chief Financial Officer estimated it would bring in $22 million in new tax revenue per year.
But what amounts to a few million dollars a year for D.C. has been taken as a significant insult — and threat — by the countries on the list, especially those in the Caribbean.
In late September, Eugene Newry, the ambassador of the Bahamas to the U.S., wrote a letter to Mayor Muriel Bowser and members of Congress protesting its inclusion on the list. The Bahamas was included, he wrote, on "seemingly arbitrary and spurious grounds."
"The Bahamas has an exemplary history of functional cooperation through tax information exchange with the United States since 2003," he wrote in the letter.
Central America Trip #15
2004 Central America trip…
This trip ended up being 343 days and 16,000+ miles through the back-country of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. 11 rigs started the trip, within a week we broke into three smaller groups for ease of traveling. Only myself and one other rig went the full, pre-planned route. All the others dropped out for various reasons. All returned safely to the United States. I’m planning to show these photos, more or less, 10 a day, whenever I’m not doing something else deserving a blog entry. FINALLY, it must be remembered these photos are prior to my switching to digital in 2006. The films were developed during our trip and the lack of quality control sometimes is plainly evident.
Scientists launch global shark and ray census
Out of the 100 million sharks caught each year, scientists estimate that up to 73 million have their fins sliced off (often while still alive) to make shark fin soup — a Chinese delicacy eaten as a luxury dish at weddings and other special occasions. A growing appetite for shark fins and meat is considered the leading cause of sharply declining shark populations.
An ambitious project to conduct a global survey of sharks aims to find out how much is left of these top marine predators. Launched in July with $4 million in funding from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, Global FinPrint is an international initiative that will assess the health of populations of sharks and rays — aka elasmobranchs — in 400 different locations over a period of three years.
The project’s mission is “to produce the first globally standard survey of elasmobranch density and diversity across the world’s continental and insular shelves” in order to improve the understanding of the animals’ status and inform conservation efforts, according to the Global FinPrint website. “Because of a lack of consistent surveys, it is difficult to determine what pristine densities and diversities ‘should’ be to set restoration targets,” the website states.
Caribbean to Seek Measures to Stop Rise in Temperatures
The Caribbean has agreed to ask for measures to limit the temperature increase to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century at the 21st UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP21, set to begin Nov. 30 in Paris, the government of St. Lucia said on Monday.
In a statement, the government said this expectation was agreed to in the second meeting of climate change negotiators and ministers held in Saint Lucia last week with representatives from the 15-member Caribbean Community, or CARICOM.
“We want to limit the temperature increase to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, because 1.5 degrees Celsius is the threshold for Small Island Developing States,” St. Lucian Sustainable Development, Energy, Science and Technology Minister James Fletcher said.
The Caribbean regional group wants to ensure an agreement is reached at COP21 “that will allow the main issues to be addressed under some form of protocol,” Fletcher said.
