Our friend Linda, proprietor of the Coco Loco bar in San Pedro, Belize, did us the honor of creating one of her directional signs for us. It’s customary for her favored customers to be listed on a sign that points toward where they can normally be found. (Apart from at her bar!) A typical sign says “D.J. – Dallas, 1162 miles” or “Bill – 2 miles”
In our case the sign points both ways and says “You Just Never Know” because we are constantly traveling. Although we’ve been spending time in Belize for a few years, in ’09 and ’10 we spent nearly half our time there. I reckon we have more friends in Belize than in any other single place. It’s such a cliche to say the best thing about a place is ‘the people’ but it’s a deep truth when talking about Belize. Belizean people are very genuine and welcoming and it rubs off on the expats too. It’s a great place to both visit and to live and when we are away we always miss Belize and our friends.
