Sounds totally true to life for here. I think I know Hagen! I'll have to buy it as well. Maybe you could persuade one of the bookshops in SP to get a few in.

I think I understand what you are saying – but maybe not. I spent the last few days reading John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden.” I could only read so many chapters and would have to walk away and do something else in order to digest what I had read.
I think people who saw the movie think it was about the character played by James Dean. To me it is about two characters; Samuel Hamilton and Mr. Lee.
I’m not Buddhist – or any other organized religion – but do enjoy the questioning of our minds and motives that a challenging author can construct if our mind is open to new concepts.
You are so right – Belize – especially San Pedro – is a different world to tourists than to those who move and stay more than a little while and is very different to those gringos who stay a long time from the people who consider themselves locals and have been here for less than a generation. (But don’t mention that to any one of them!)
Why don’t you bring a case of your books and come on down? We could have an interesting study group. LOL

BTW – your post is showing up in two different threads and it gets confusing.

Take only pictures leave only bubbles
