A new life in Belize

Coady and Vickers

We had our friends over to stay from Canada , the last time we saw them was a year ago  on Canada day  in London England . Coady is an avid reader of the blog and was excited to be down here to leave the civilised world behind. I picked them up in the truck from the airport and we stopped in at Altun Ha to see the ruins and the Snake man . This guy is about a mile from the the ruins and lives in a shack that would look great in a horror movie. Every time I’ve been to the ruins he’s been there trying to flag us down ..he looks a bit like the bald guy from the Hills Have Eyes. I asked my friend who lives at Altun Ha if he was ok .. he just looked at me and said ..well he’s harmless but he ripped us off for a bit of cash ..( LIKE EVERYONE ELSE HAS BEEN WHO LIVES IN BELIZE AT SOME POINT)  So we decided to take a chance . The guy was not what I expect ..he was very knowledgeable about snakes and spoke with an American twang ..he’s famous for getting bitten by a Fer De Lance, spent 5 days in a coma and survived. He said he’d got another in the house but I kept telling him we didn’t want to see it. He produced a magnificent boa about  10 feet long which weighed about 50 pounds.

The week revolved around drinking large amounts of alcohol … we went to the local fruit market and purchased a whole array of tropical fruits ..  Vickers in his famous radio voice pronounced  today was “Rumpocolypse Day ” . Numerous concoctions were mixed laced with copious amounts of rum…. the best being a mango and pineapple mixture blended to perfection. The day subsided and night time arrived and Vickers had his first taste of toasted spam sandwiches .. we played pool and drank some more… 3 litres  of rum later ..cuban cigars, dancing and plenty of tall stories!

The gravel around the house is completed and the mosquito’s have gone , my lasting imagine of Coady is when the locks broke to the door at Bertlams they were trying to get in and the mosquito’s were vicious …Coady was wearing little shorts ….and her ass looked like someone had fired a shot gun at it…   Bertlams car has been a constant bind.. ..it has now been replaced as even the mechanic called it the red devil  :).. the mosquito’s have now subsided so tonight we will be on H Cove sipping rum punch around a beach fire ….paradise!!
