from a friend

Everyone heading to Belmopan. I cannot get out to the junction to see
the action. I can only hope the cops are waving on most traffic - go
west, guys, deep west, run for the border. Belmopan is full!

Still I understand many will not leave Belize City. Heard a couple of
conversations at the breadline today. Generally, they do not trust the
cops to take care of business as the last time they were cleaned out
by thieves. One guy said the last time they cleaned out his house and
even stole his dog.

Bumber to bumper on the Western Highway, hundreds of vehicles, 10
accidents so far, drivers being very mean and not giving way to
ambulances trying to get through - it's everyman (and woman) for
