Back from Belize [Apr. 2nd, 2007|01:26 am]

[Tags|, ]

Just got back from Belize. I now have 8.5 hours until I have to leave for Tokyo, and I still need to pack, so I'll have to make this update quick. Pictures and more stories to follow, some perhaps with well-considered friends-only filters. :-)

In a nutshell:
  • still love Caye Caulker
  • good diving
  • good people
  • diving, dancing, darts, drinking, and probably other things that start with 'd'
  • scsi and ioerror both have underwater cameras and got good pictures which I can't wait to steal and re-post
  • dan_erat and I got our rental sailboat taken away for sucking so much. I think we were getting it, though... Rasta Man just needed to let us get warmed up. "It's all good man, all love, I just can't risk you wreckin' me boat."
  • I have awesome bike-riding-with-person-on-handlebars skills.
  • I got to sit in the co-pilot's seat on the 15 person plane from the island to Belize City.

Are you in Tokyo for YAPC? I'll be at the YAPC dinner on Wednesday night (I am here visiting Mixi and a few other companies). My Friday night is free... no phone though...

What sites did you dive?

last time I was in belize my wife and I were in a 4 seat plane from San Ignacio out to Ambergris Caye. The small plane freaked her out a little so she white-knuckled it in the back while the pilot let me sit next to him in front. Totally fascinating. One of our guides told me that the mafia ran both of the airlines in Belize.
