I am somewhat new to this board and have been to Belize a few times over the past 10 years. I was checking out the bridge threads and found them very entertaining. I really don't have an adgenda or much of an opinion about the bridge although I can't remember anything quite as unique as the pull ferry in my travels.

I was wondering who was the person or persons that really pushed for the bridge over the years and helped it become a reality. Was it Barry Bowen or was he just kind enough to help finance it? It can see the project was approved and going by early Feb. 2005. http://sanpedrosun.net/old/05-053.html

I also see that SIN put his money where his mouth is but no one called him on it.

It appears to follow the some of the 6 phases of a normal project:

1. Enthusiasm
2. Panic
3. Disillusionment
4. Search for the gulity
5. Punishment of the innocent
6. Praise and honors for the non-participants (mostly from themselves)

I can tell the bridge must be about complete because phase 6 is going strong.

Who should really cut the ribbion? And who should jump off the bridge?
