This morning we had a huge helicopter flying above. It was doing big, very low circles around the Banyan Bay area down towards Victoria House. It was a Mexican helicopter. After it finally landed at the airport, we encountered a police escorted convoy - the police had their lights flashing and everything. Lots of important looking people in smart white shirts were being transported south in a shiny, new silver van. It looks like its going to be an interesting weekend.

Mexican president, Felipe Calderon Hinojosa, to visit Belize

Mexico’s president, H.E. Felipe Calderon Hinojosa, is scheduled to make a state visit to Belize from Friday, June 29 to Saturday, June 30, 2007—the eve of the ruling party’s national convention in Corozal.
Amandala understands that the Mexican president will be accompanied by a delegation of about fifty people, who will be arriving in grand style. They will be making a special trip up North.
President Calderon will pay a special visit to Corozal, where he is expected to inaugurate Centro Escolar, an expansion for Escuela Secondaria Technica Mexico.
During the President’s visit, Prime Minister Musa will confer upon him the Order of Belize, awarded to foreign heads of state that the Government of Belize thinks deserves the honor. Similar conferrals have been made to the presidents of Taiwan, Jamaica, and Panama, as well as Calderon’s predecessor, Vicente Fox, on his June 2005 visit to Belize.
A highlight of Fox’s visit back then was the official announcement that Pemex, a large fuel franchise owned by the Mexican Government, would expand its operations into Central America, starting with Belize. That deal has yet to come to fruition.
Information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that President Calderon’s visit will coincide with the IX Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Tuxtla Mechanism, which will be held on San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
President Calderon is scheduled to pay a courtesy call on Governor General, Sir Colville Young. He will also visit with Prime Minister Said Musa, who had extended the invitation for the state visit, as well as senior officials of government.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that topics slated for discussion are border security, bilateral trade, cooperation between Belize and Mexico, education, Belize-Guatemala relations and military assistance.
We understand that in addition to further discussion of the Pemex proposal, there may also be discussions surrounding the possibility of a Mexican brewery being set up in Belize.

I thought maybe it was our new friends at Royal Palm - obviously I was wrong.
