Three ladies dancing, comparza!
Victoria Collins in back, then Dulce Vasquez in the middle. The lady in front is Dione and she was from Oklahoma.
This was the comparza Dulce put together for the Ann Riley lights. Dennis wrote a song called Gringas in Belize and we had a blast going around town dancing. well some ended riding along on the carts after too much rum punch lol
Back in the early 1990s, Dione had the Lagoon Restaurant vegetarian on Middle Street at the Casa Blanca Hotel, where Social Security is now located. Really good food when Marilyn (Rasta Pasta) was cooking there. She got mixed up with Dick Davis.
Neon Dion. I remember the night she put the body in the freezer. The Health Department has no sense of humor:-)
We didn't have a morgue on the island and Dione was just trying to help out, sometimes the Casablanca crowd got a little crazy with drugs and debauchery. ..as we all did. The police said 'Natural Causes' on the dead body but the health department wasn't as understanding. Happy to have lived through those crazy times and not end up in Diones freezer.
Dion and this girl had gone out and were at a resort up north (Capricorn) when the girl went to the bathroom to shoot up. She overdosed. She had been staying at changes and latitudes when Lori Reed owned it. Lori had found evidence of her drug use and kicked her out. Casa Blanca also had rooms. Dion brought her wrapped up in a blue tarp to the restaurant and put her in a walkin freezer. And yes, the health dept shut down the restaurant for awhile.
The rooftop there was a local hot spot for a couple of years.
