Moon Belize 2017 Updates: Sharing New Highlights

Revisions, additions, deletions: the writing portion of Moon Belize 2017 is in full swing!

After my MacPro died in November during a massive rainstorm on a boat transfer, I was left computerless on the road in Belize for 4 weeks. Thankfully, I had backed up all my work up until that point on external drives, and my iPhone saved the >>day–allowing me to take notes, snap photos and record audio.

New “chapter highlights,” fresh photos are coming to each chapter.

In Punta Gorda, a favorite was spending the day with EcoTourism Belize in Indian Creek Village–cooking Mayan caldo and tortillas, hiking an organic farm, watching dance performances, and… witnessing plenty of giggles from the women’s group while they posed for my camera. To top it off, 100% of Ecotourism Belize’s profits will go towards sustainable development in the south.

    Thanks Jess – yes that was such a fun moment! I’m glad I captured it. They are all sisters, and their mother is on the far left. One of the sisters was teasing another, saying: “This one is always posing!” And they all laughed.
    It’s a blast making tortillas – not my first time but it never gets old!
