The Today Show is going "to the ends of the earth" this week to reinforce the need to protect the earth and Belize just happens to be where Matt Lauer is. Caught a snippet of Lauer at the Blue Hole (while home recovering from shoulder surgery - have to be ready to dive in February). Tomorrow he will be snorkeling Shark Ray Alley/Hol Chan and he mentioned San Pedro. I have mixed emotions about the publicity but if their clip on the reef is done as well as the one they did on the penguins on Phillip Island in Australia with Meredith today it will be done well. I'm not normally a Today Show person but will have to keep watching. Sorry for such a long post . . .

wow
The United Nations World Tourism Organization estimates ecotourism is a $60 billion dollar-a-year business. And because Belize is late to the huge business of tourism, in many ways, this country is still untouched.

I'm on the sofa sick and bundled up against this cold weather. I watched the entire thing this morning. Good job. Too bad our weather has turned so bad and they are broadcasting live. It was beautiful until two days ago.
The footage of the Blue Hole underwater shows how poor visibility is there. Some of their other underwater footage looked better - but not great!
I'm eager to see tomorrow. Let's hope the sun shines.

All the operators that do the Hole allow snorkelers. They snorkel with a guide that identifies marine life for them and keeps them out of trouble. The price is less than diver ..but not much. I hear lots of good reviews on their return.
