Sunday, and still poor.

If you were a first time tourist to the island on this popular weekend - and there was basically no water - what would your overall impression of Belize be? Would you return the following year? Or recommend it to your friends?

Maybe it's the Ambercolypse: the point at which the rapidly-growing population and development on the island first demonstrably exceeded the ability to survive on very humble resources.

But hey - I'm a newbie. Maybe this happens every year.

Last night and first thing this morning it was almost back to normal, but now the pressure's dropped back again.

But no, I don't recall this exact problem occurring before. Or at any rate, it's the first time I've heard this reason.

At one point over the weekend I had no water electricity or internet. I nearly had a apoplectic fit but I have taken some tablets now.......

I've got an idea lets add 3000 new lots to the grid. 3000 more homes using water and flushing toilets won't make that big a difference and it will help the economy by create jobs for Guatemalan and Honduran immigrants.
If we can just convince the town board its a good idea.....oh wait they have already approved it.....silly me their always thinking ahead down at the town hall.
