It started with a phone call. The person on the static-y line stated she was calling from St. Paulís Bank. Immediately I envisioned myself lounging at the bank of a river somewhere, and the wheels began turning. The phone call ended and I immediately turned to our good friend Google. Where is St. Paulís Bank? Half an hour down the internet wormhole later, I was deep into the Belize River Valley, learning about the villages along the Belize River that voluntarily make up a sanctuary for howler monkeys. Just look at these names: past Burrell Boom, to Flowers Bank, Maypen, Scotland Halfmoon to Bermudian Landing, Isabella Bank, Lemonal, Double Head Cabbage, Willows Bank and St. Paulís BankÖwait! Double Head Cabbage?!! Time to alert the boss!

Awesome story from the San Pedro Sun....

Mary, Best article on Belize I've read in a long while. Good work. The first few lines grabbed me and I felt like I was starting off on a road trip with HST.
