Home at last

Dreaded middle seat
Food poisoning; up again
Sorry, nice lady

Speedy cab ride home
Pajamas; kitty mauling
Nausea passing

Internet has been down for a couple of days. Here is what's been happening:

Hot and lazy day
Panades and manatees
Ice cream for dessert

Breakfast time drama
Profane threats angry tirade
All about some bikes

Power and water
You can't take them for granted
It's stinky and dark

Boom creek canoe ride
New game: log or crocodile?
Birds fly overhead

Spiders in branches
Can't steer canoe from their path
Heebie jeebie dance

Town water pump broke
Refreshing baby wipe bath
Good time to go home

I love panades
A corn patty stole my heart
Come here, tasty love

No water this week
Chalkboard fish is out of words
What about my eggs?

It's been a while since
"One More Night" has floated through
Our open window

Conserving water
Dag rinsed my head with a cup
Clean hair at long last

Cockscomb basin wildlife sanctuary

Dusty jungle trail
Lizard dismembers spider
Tasty hairy snack

Inner tube: Let's go!
Get out when you reach the rope
Where the $&#%'s the rope?!

Upside down beetle
Dag flips him; he's on his way
I love Dag for this

84 degree night

I know I complain 
Always of Portland cold but
This sheet is too hot


Manatee watching
Entertaining us for hours
Sunburn on my scalp

"Come down to the pub!"
There we saw every whitey
In Hopkins Village


The biggest challenge
I am faced with every day
Speaking my first words

I hide in the room
While dag is outside chatting
Making up haiku

My little helpers
Coffee and milk in the room
Promise of breakfast 

Ever so slowly
My personality creeps
Back into my heart

Lizard eating grass
clothes drying out in the sun
I think it's naptime

This is what it's like

Welcome to Belize
Butterflies and frigate birds
Breakfast in the sun

Hopkins village morn
Phil Collins song Island style
Swimming in the sea

We've arrived safe & sound in Hopkins Village, Belize. There was a
moment (a couple of hours worth) of self-flogging panic where we were
convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that we were going to miss our
5pm flight out of Belize city. Then somehow we were flying out on the
earlier flight and so were our bags. I love this country already!
