Howdy all. I just received this email from a AC board lurker questioning my post about enjoying the dining experience in San Pedro. How would you all have responded, just curious.

Dining out on Ambergris Caye is more of an event than a meal. Take the time to meet the owners, servers, bartenders, and cooks. Don't be in a hurry with your planned out itinerary, chill and enjoy the sights, sounds and settle into that Belizean Daze.

Steve,

Please post your email to me on the Ambergris Caye board. Having tooted your own horn, you answered your own questions. Belize is not
in the US. It is a unique place with a diverse and
unique society. All of the servers in San Pedro combined probably do not make what you do in a year. They do take the time to meet the people and provide local flavor to the dining experience that is priceless. If you are in a hurry in Belize, you took a wrong turn somewhere.
