Well, we and all of our bags made it to San Pedro. I’m currently getting settled in at the “office,” which is a 3 bedroom house in the north-ish part of town. This is actually advantageous, because there is a full kitchen and I can lock myself in my office/bedroom when I need to concentrate. My boss is also a coffee and tea snob, so we’ve got an espresso machine and a kettle. I’ve already located a tortillaria just up the road, so I foresee quite a bit of huevos rancheros in my future.
We’re still house hunting, and I’m hopeful that we’ll find something today. I have a few appointments this afternoon and a few more leads to follow up on. In the meantime here are a few photos from our trip down and what we’ve been doing since we’ve been here.
Venice and the last bit of Louisiana from the plane
The Tropic Air flight from Belize City to San Pedro
Just some islands on the way to San Pedro
If anyone would like to chip in a monthly timeshare fee, I might be able to afford this.
Fantastic ceviche, served in an abalone shell. Unfortunately there is a disturbing lack of avocados on this island.

That’s it for now! I’m off to meet with more potential landlords.
I promise to be more interesting soon and have things to write about. Right now I’m mostly packing, cleaning, training, shopping, and rolling over 401K’s. So far moving to Belize is tedious. I thought someone had ordered me business cards and got really excited until I opened the box and realized it was a stamp with someone else’s name on it. I’m basically a mule for things that are too expensive to ship to San Pedro, which is kind of fun. Case in point, here’s part of an email from the new boss:
“If you have ANY luggage space, please bring a good sized bag or two of Jolly Ranchers or Werthers caramels.”
Here are the promised animals doing cute things until my life gets more exciting.
This is all I have to say about moving:
