I had the good fortune of moving to Belize in July 1989, it doesn't seem that long ago, but let me assure you it was a long time away and a far distant land. We used to joke to one another that this paradise cannot last, that eventually there would be so many tourists here that you could not even get some beach space. I remember a very good friend of mine John Greif SR used to say When I moved here I found paradise, happy people, no agendas, no problems........Everyone has thier prioritys, it does" little" to say "do as I say
not as I do"! we are all guilty of it, nothing personal here.. I am just a little saddened by what we all seem to preach but not do.. But do not say you cannot live without a certain luxury.. we all can do without, I guess it all boils down to how serious we all are as individuals... guess what! our children's children will decide on the wiseness of all our decisions, and from my point of view we have screwed it up... from Detroit all the way to Sanpedro, people only get one chance at doing it right and we have ignored the perverbial writing on the wall and gone ahead with absolute destruction of one of the most pristine, not to mention beautiful parts of the world. Now I know people will be on my case about things like.. what makes you such an expert.. who are you to say this kind of thing...but you know I'm right, I just hope there is something left of the place in 20 years where my kids can say Hey I'm from Sanpedro, ya Belize, we made a difference, somehow though, I think it has gone to far. So people enjoy those motorcycles, high powered boats, and the latest and greatest four wheeled contraptions, and don't give a damn, after all we are only here for a short time........This is my opinion only, damn the torpedos..full speed ahead...


Reality..What a concept!
