Back in Belize for Holy Week

art.jpgAh … Belize in the springtime—hot (102 in the shade yesterday), dry, dusty, and as vibrant and full of life as ever. I spent my first day day tripping to Cayo where I stumbled upon a marching band festival on the streets of San Ignacio, then pushed westward into the bush where I finally had a chance to visit the Poustinia Art Park, a truly bizarre, extraordinary environmental museum, of sorts. There I met Gilvano Swasey and Luis Alberto Ruiz, visionary Belizean artists featured in the New York Times article, “And You Thought Art in New York Was a Jungle” by Bruce Barcott. Then it was back  to the Caribbean, arriving in Belize City in time for sunset and happy hour.
