Creatures of Belize
A place to share knowledge and pictures of the fauna in Belize. The important thing here is sharing knowledge, not necessarily how pretty the photo looks. Better an adequate photo showing distinguishing features and a comment telling us the location, than a beautiful picture we cannot identify from.

Three children at the telephone in Central Park, May 1993

Laura Gutierrez: The older girl is Olga Gonzalez, the boy is Freddy Gonzalez, their parents are Guatemalans. If I'm not mistaken, they returned to Guatemala.

In 1978 there was only one phone. I remember when the only phone was in what looked like a former outhouse in Ms Steins yard. It took a lot of times to get international. There were only 25 lines out of Belize. Pier Lounge got the 2nd phone. Or later sitting at Fidos and waiting for 4 hours for the operator to call you back and all you called think all you do is drink all day. Henry and Mary Beissner had one very early on. I remember when the only phone on Caye Caulker was a radio phone at Miss Claudia and Mr. Eduardo Reyes’ house.

Before phones there were only a couple of shortwaves on the island. Only two Land Rovers. No Golf Carts.

Eli Pearly: Oh how many times we used that phone. Or tried to... Never worked most of the time!!
