Very short trip and report. - 01/23/03 11:40 PM

Arrived on Saturday and left on Wednesday. In short, had a lot of fun. Stayed at Banana Beach as usual. Ate mostly at the street vendors and cooked some in my room. Have to put in a shameless plug for the street venders. For $2.50 US you get a big plate of rice and beans and chicken and potato salad. I want to be the one to write a book one day about how to get by in AC on $25 a day (this would include beer). Anyway, hung out either at BCs or Crazy Canucks. Found out my dog (actually she's not mine but I think Don and Carol from the Canuck's let me think she is when I'm in AC) was sick and spent a lot of time wandering around the streets with her. If you were there, I'm sure you saw me with a huge shephard walking around. Got to see Satan and some other crocodile while I was there. Got some sun on my last 2 days, the first two were downright cold. Got to meet a lot of great people and see some old friends (Robbie, Don and Carol, Dan (the drummer) and his son, Denverdan and kids). All in all I had a blast. One extra special thing was the restaurant at Banana Beach and the staff there, I actually feel like family when I stay there.

P.S. Also checked out Caribe Resort and was very impressed with their grounds. Anyway, that's it, feel like I've been all over AC in a matter of days. One last thing for the ladies, if you ever get a chance, there's a very small lingerie shop on middle street that you can actually get really cute skivvies for a very low price. I know, why am I mentioning that, just in case you ever lose your luggage or your skivvies. laugh laugh laugh

Brandy is the dog's name right? Sorry to hear she's not doing well. I stayed there last year and threw stones for her for hours so she could retrieve them. Great dog!

Yep, Brandy's the one. She is such a sweetheart, but very weak right now. I hope she pulls through. frown

Hey Becky,
I leave in two weeks for BZ and AC. Do you know what ails Brandy? When I was there the week before Christmas I went to Playador and she didn't seem to be her old self.
Glad you had a good time and hope our Belize schedules cross again!

if she seems lethargic, when someone see's her next, check see if her gums are "pale"...if so, let's hope all she needs is a shot of iron and some deworming=pale gums usually mean anemic (sp)? Does she have a keeper, owner??? C

They told me at Playador she was treated for heartworms. She's very tired, but still holding in there.
