FROM GACH AT 4:00 PM

AS USUAL GACH WAS LAUGHING...SAYS, "SEND THE TOURISTS DOWN, WE'RE WAITING" - OF COURSE WE ALL KNOW THAT THAT IS WISHFUL THINKING BUT A LAUGH AND A SMILE FROM BELIZE SURE MEANS ALOT IN THESE DIFFUCULT TIMES
HE REALLY SOUNDED OPTIMISTIC AS ONLY A SAN PEDRANO LIKE GACH CAN - SAID THE DAY WAS BEAUTIFUL, BLUE SKIES, NICE FLUFFY CLOUDS AND TROPICAL BREEZES YOU FIND IN MAY - SET THE MOOD FOR ME - REPORTED THAT MAIN STREET WAS CLEARED AND CLEAN, THE SAND WAS DRY, GOLF CARTS WERE ZIPPING AROUND AGAIN AND SOME HOUSES WERE MISSING THEIR ROOFS - THE GREAT NEWS FOR ME, WHICH I'VE BEEN ASKING FOR FOR DAYS, WAS THAT THE OLD FAITHFUL SAN PEDRO HOLIDAY HOTEL WAS STANDING TALL - I GUESS YOU CAN'T KNOCK A GOOD THING DOWN - COULD TAKE GUESTS TOMORROW LIKE THE MAYAN PRINCESS, TROPICA BEACH AND SUNBREEZE EXCEPT THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT ALLOWING IT AS THEIR ROOMS AND UNITS ARE NEEDED FOR THE STAFF TRYING TO PUT THE ISLAND BACK TOGETHER - FELT THAT MAYBE IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS? THERE'S ELECTRICITY ON MAIN STREET, MAYBE WATER SOON????? THEY SEEM UPBEAT AND SO SHOULD WE.

FROM SHIELA AT 6:00

REPORTED LOTS OF SOLDIERS ON THE ISLAND TO HELP, TWO BARGES WITH FOOD AND ALMOST LIKE GACH, FELT THAT THREE WEEKS SHOULD BE A VERY GOOD TIME TO START ACCEPTING TOURISTS. SHE ALSO REPORTED THAT THEY COULD COMMUNICATE IN TOWN BY PHONE BUT THAT INTERNATIONAL CALLS AND EMAIL WOULD TAKE ABOUT TWO WEEKS - THE TOWER IS DOWN AND HAS TO BE RECONSTRUCTED NOT JUST REPAIRED - SAID ABC NEWS HAD BEEN OUT INTERVIEWING, SO CHECK YOUR TV SETS - I MYSELF HAVEN'T SEEN ONE IN 6 DAYS.

TOMORROW WILL BRING MORE GOOD NEWS.

Hey Sue, it's Lorna (formerly of Amigos Del Mar) here in Hong Kong. Thanks for the update. I have been glued to this message board and it is so great to hear the truth start to come out after so many days of speculation.
