    nice, I love your hair and that Cancun t-shirt your wearing in that photo 🙂

    I love traveling like that. I feel pretty lucky I was able to.

    you go so many fun places. And then I can live vicariously (or however you spell that) through you, while avoiding the bug bites and the dusty-sweaty parts of the trip.

    I think it must rain a lot there, so not much schooling must be going on…
    The Mayan ruins must have been very cool, but I’m such a sissy, I couldn’t take the icky parts of that trip in order to see them.

    I bet you smelled. Like roses.

  5. jen says:

    um, you do realize that’s exactly where i am moving to. you do, right? as in, in country hosts for your next trip?

    That sounds like fun. Except the deodorantless part…

    Apparently Belize has the second largest barrier reef in the world.

    I lived in Venezuela for a while, but I was under 10 so there wasn’t much tequila involved.

    I’m glad Cute John survived. Oh, and you too, of course. 😉

    I never would have known to plug up the gas line holes with soap. Now I feel better equiped to handle driving in a jungle. Of course, I’ll have to remember to have soap with me in the jungle, but, duh, that’s like a no brainer right!?

    By the way, the look of being a total tourist while a warning for tourists was out made me laugh! But I think you knew it would.

    Jocelyn, you don’t look a bit like a tourist…can’t imagine why you were worried! 🙂

    I am a gringo, how come no one molests me…huh…how come!!

    Great story! Gone with the Wind, what only 32 times? My first was when I was 9 years old.

    Scarlett O’Hara was not beautiful but men seldom realized it when caught by her charms, as the Tarleton twins were that afternoon.

    That’s probably not the exact first sentence but damn close. See how the woman who names her only daughter Scarlett hones in on that and ignores the rest of the gripping story?

    Glad to know that road to Tikal is still in such sad shape. We were there 7 years ago and worried for banditos then too!

    The Leaky Tire Brigade! That’s it exactly. I’m not sure if it’s ubiquitous through Central and South America but it sure was in Guadalajara, where my high school Spanish class spent a couple of weeks 6 geeky teenaged girls who maybe had 3 dates a year among the lot of us were suddenly hit on every 10 feet. What headiness!

    Where is Cute John now? I understand his minty breath now that I know you had no deoderant. Ever the valiant muchacho, he was compensating.

    Fantastical. Or, as they would have said, “Fantastico!”

    i am so familiar with the packed in taxi and the jerry rigged mechanical fixes, as well as the poorly stocked third world schools and the deathly fear of rain. oh yes, you have indeed brought back a flood of memories…and the idea of bearing the tropics sans antiperspirant/deodorant is a “strong” one to say the least.

    Deodorant is severely overrated – it just encourages less washing.
