Some great advice for board members:
One of the reasons I came to Belize originally was to meet new and diverse people from another culture and to escape the trappings and over regulation of America. Now, I am sure that most of the folks that come here to visit are nice and I would probably enjoy knowing them but I just don't get why anyone would travel to a third world country in Central America and one of their goals would be meeting other Americans they chatted with on the internet. Why not just stay in America and meet down the block at Applebee's? Ok, I admit I am not all that sociable and am much like the guy in the Jimmy Buffett song who "is losing his hearing and don't care what most people say." It's just for gosh sakes there is a whole other world here so why not let loose of those chains that bind us as Americans and see what else exist. Wow, am I on the soap box today or what, let me check; no the moon is not full. Right Here, mi amigos---Reef Ransom.:

Now Jesse, don't imply that people on this board might not be worth meeting while in Belize. Just because Reef Ransom must have met you and me causing him to form that opinion, does not mean meeting others might not be a pleasant experience. laugh

It's been my experience that while the U.S. is "one country" - it has lots of different cultures. The culture in LA is much different from Columbia,South Carolina or Taos, New Mexico, which are all different from the big sky country of Montanna or the heartland of Kansas. Each part of the country has it's own cuisine and entertainment and brand of hospitality. In many ways it's like visiting a lot of different countries.

I'm looking forward to meeting the people of Belize and my newfound boarder friends from all over the U.S.

Viva la difference! smile

I was enjoying the read until I came to that inane paragraph about why would a tourist want to meet other tourists they met on a chat board????? Why would someone NOT want to make new friends? To imply that they have no interest in meeting the hosts of the country they are visiting is ridiculous. However, most of the Belizeans HAVE TO WORK for living--i.e, they can't spend the afternoon sitting at the bar, going snorkeling, diving, fishing (unless of course they are WORKING). And most of them go home to eat their meals (just as we do when we are at home). One of the great things about this board and the excellent job that Marty does trying to keep all the diverse personalities that visit it in line, is it allows people from everywhere meet on vacation. It's great to make new friends, experience new places/food/drink, etc. together - it bonds alot of these people to the point that they want to return to Belize and party with their friends again. Seems to me to be win/win situation for all involved. Now, I'll get off the soap box. laugh :p
