A “cold” front finally blows through Belize, offering respite from the sun and fresh breezes from the north. It’s not the best weather for diving, but it’s great for staying in and writing, catching up on ten days worth of notes from throughout the country. That my hotel room is WiFi equipped is distracting for work, but nice for sharing a few island images.

Come on down and pick up your own piece — Belize is going fast…
