Journals from Belize:
Our meeting with Andreas did not go as well as I had hoped. He was in bed when we arrived and claimed to be ill with fever. His prescription of anti-biotic on the table next to his hammock somewhat legitimized his claim. However, there was a hint of mellow drama as he squirmed nervously during our visit with him. So he is out for sure on today's training and questionable for tomorrow’s health check as well. This is a hiccough for certain, but not worth stressing much over. This is the nature of expeditions. Things rarely, if ever, go off as planned. Resources and contacts frequently fall through or must be re-arranged. This too will soon get sorted out.

Somehow between training and dinner we find time to hike to the ridge that reaches several hundred feet above Laguna Village. We dub the event “Jono’s Discount Jungle Tours”, and head up single file like a group of leaf cutter ants…only less dangerous and not whatsoever adept at jungle travel.
