RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE OF CAYO DISTRICT, BELIZE

Despite the fact that the jungle of Belize harbors creatures that can kill you in extremely painful ways, desperate from days of stareing out from hammocks on the deck and hallucinating from boredom, the heat & the kaleidscope of colors moving on the sparkly sea, Islandgirl & I decided to change our scenery & vibe & ended up spending a few days in the bush near the western border to Guatemala. We visited two jungle outposts belonging to our artist friends in the villages of Bullet Tree & Santa Familia. We spent the evenings watching amateur boxing matches in the pebble filled courtyard & spent the day roasting freshly picked corn from the field, straight to the open fire & into the mouth.
Islandgirl kept me laughing with stories like the time a street man asked her to buy him something to eat and she bought him a corn.
He was very upset when she handed him the corn and she was perplexed.

Islandgirl: "why are you so mad? Eat the corn, don't make me waste my money!"

Wacko:"you chancy (creole to take advantage)"
Islandgirl: "Didn't you say you were hungry?"
Wacko: "Can't you see I only have one front tooth, I will have to hide behind the boat and pick at this corn one by one, it could take me all day!"
