Escape From the Cold, and Why I Love Belize.

Escape From the Cold, and Why I Love Belize.

I am tired, a log day of traveling but I loved it and  nothing like being in a foreign country to  give you a fresh perspective on life. I planned this trip a few weeks ago, looking for something historic and also with a lot of natural beauty. I think I may have chosen the right place.  Had a delightful walk through the streets of Belize City.  Belize is not a wealthy country, and to the folks accustomed to the shopping areas of New York and  Los Angeles may be disappointed. But it was a quaint town with little shops, street vendors, lots of history and the most friendly and warm people. had many a nice conversations with the locals, wishing me well, and my country well. It was hot and humid out so took a lot out of me. Had a nice warm water lobster , which they are famous for,  prepared  troubadour style for dinner It was good and I am full. Looking forward to heading inland tomorrow. Lots of wildlife, 50% of Belize is forested, and also a lot of Mayan ruins. I truly enjoy exploring new countries and experiencing their cultures, foods and customs and also seeking out the natural beauty that exists within their borders. And I love sharing it. We are living on a remarkably rare, beautiful and fragile planet.  We need to take better care of it. I uploaded a few photos from my walk to my photograph page and this is a link to where more can be found on my Flicker site.  hCUBA AND BELIZE 386ttps://

    Looks adventurous Frank. A few more months and I’ll be your neighbor down there.

      It is Ken, but you know me I’m happy exploring McAdoo. It is beautiful, so laid back. Saw a frigate bird this morning. Remember them in Ecuador? I may just be looking for a place down here. They speak English and the electric current is the same. And great lobster. Hope it’s warm up there, it’s in the cool 70’s this morning.

      It is, so laid back. Can’t wait to head inland. A lot of native and migrating birds. Hope to have some cool photos later. Thanks and stay warm up there.
