‘Reflections’ in Ambergris Caye,Belize.

Yesterday saw the end of the tenth week since our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize began. With twenty-five percent of the project time lapsed Rose and I spent time today reflecting on the experience so far.

We have found it exciting, exhilarating on occasions, thought provoking and sometimes it is all that we think and talk about. But, and it is. BIG, it is thoroughly enjoyable.

There is still, obviously, a long way to go but we have come a long way and it was my intention with today’s edition to take you through a pictorial journey from the start of our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize to where we are now . Well that was the intention until the computer gremlins went to work. I can view the photographs I intended to include but try as I may I have been unable to include them in this edition.

So, as was sometimes the case when I worked for national newspapers in the UK, I apologise for an edition that is less than it was intended to be . Normal service WILL be resumed tomorrow.

Not that it counts for much given the absence of photos but today’s headline is based on the 1967 single by Diana Ross & the Supremes. It reached number two in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and number five in the UK.

    Congratulations, you folks are living an adventure in a new world. I would imagine that things to be worked out, built and accomplished in Belize are probably not at all like they are back home. Take all in stride and someday you will be stepping back and pleased at what you see. Enjoy !

    1. Thanks Tom.
      Building conditions/techniques are different but most things – in the end – depend on how well you plan and communicate. Being on-site every day also helps . We are enjoying the experience.

    You deserve a day off, John! Looking forward to tomorrow, as always…

    1. Thanks Jane. Probably spent more time trying to get rid of the gremlins than I would have spent doing the blog.
