Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary Jaguar Reserve [9 April 1994]

Further transcription of my Belize travel journal

After riding through the waste of a banana plantation, we entered the forest--it was only a secondary rain forest that has grown up over an old logging area but it provided some introduction to the abundance of rain forest here.

The ride there was an amusingly bone-jarring trip in a beaten Chevy van all spot-welded together. Its driver, our guide Ellis, is a wiry fellow w/a huge mop of hair and particularly musical Creole accent. He emphasizes each consonant equally "There's a fucking sol-it-ary eagle." His eyes are sharp, he can be cussing & jiving away swiping the van back and forth on the dirt roads & spot a toucan up in a tree at 200 yards.

Along w/us are two sunbrowned and attractive American girls--one blonde, one brunette. I didn't speak with them much--they seemed young, a young Placencian fellow brought them along, apparently the brown-haired one is his girlfriend & I wonder about the pretty American girls you find in places like these, smoking their cigarettes, diddling the young locals--I find it all a bit alluring but I don't really understand it.

Ellis shows us leaf-cutter ant trails, how you can use the soldiers to suture wounds together, the amazing variety of flora: custard apple trees, rubber trees, philodendrons, heliconias, birds of paradise. I admire all these & I xxxxxx xxx xxxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx xxx--xxx xxxxxx xx xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxx xx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx x xxxxxxxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx. xxxx, xxx x xx xx xxxxxx x xxxxxx xxxx.

After an equally bone-jarring ride back (1.20 hours), we drop off the Serenity girls (that's where they are staying) & motor home to pick up the bread (15 loaves) for the trip to the cayes. The lady who makes the bread is a cheerful giggly lady called Miss Lydia who cheerfully hands us our bread in here cheerful kitchen, we also get some cherry pops wrapped in cellophane from her--mine ruptures and I drip red juice all over myself.

For dinner, we join the Millers, John, his dad Harry & John's blonde (in all the connotations of the term Colleen) girlfriend. Oddly enough, all the way in the Carribean I'm eating a respectable plate of Chicken Chow Mein seasoned w/the local Habanero sauce.

The Millers are eminently practical men--the father was a forest ranger, the son a marketing instructor in the local college business school (Chico State). They've been in Belize for 2 weeks hence. They drove down in a non-stock 4-wheeler pickup truck w/a camper, a motorcycle and a powerboat. Both are husky fellows w/jolly but disciplined temperaments. Alot of common sense, and the facility to repair just about everything in sight. They love telling stories & you learn a lot by listening because they have encountered so many mechanical problems & such & have found solutions for them.
