Way to go Ian!
For those that don't know, Ian Anderson runs Caves Branch Jungle Lodge,
just south of Belmopan. He and his wife, Tangi, are super folks...great
His mountain rescue course is nothing to laugh about. Recently some
British soldiers thought they would take a little "holiday" and go out
to do Ian's basic rescue course. After several 16 hour days, they
declared that this was a very advanced course. Ian's bread and butter,
however, is the tourism business of taking people on some of the most
fascinating cave trips you can imagine. They run one of the best tours
I've ever been on in the mainland of Belize.
It's people like them that keep the tourism product in this country
strong. If you can't do anything else, send Ian and his crew your "Atta
Boys". If you want to donate to Ian's crew and their relief effort,
contact Marty for info. It would be relief money put where the rubber
meets the road.
