Aspen, Rachel, Tatiana & Todd
While Janie and Kelly were here, our other neighbors came for a stay. Todd and Tatiana bought about 75 acres of jungle behind us about a year and a half ago, and this was their first trip back to Belize since their land purchase. They were excited to show the land to Aspen, their daughter, and Rachel, Todd’s mother, and what better place to stay than right next door? They spent the first part of their Belize vacation on Caye Caulker, and then came inland. The land still looks great to them, but they shared Shane and Monique’s frustration at how much they have to do and how little they can do in a short visit. Despite that, they were able to hike around on the land enough to decide on a tentative house site and to walk a possible path for a driveway. They also visited San Antonio to get to know the village a little better, and took a day to see the Mountain Pine Ridge sights and do things like play in Rio On Pools. Before they left on Saturday, Tom and I took a walk around their property with them and were delighted to see that what they want to do actually looks doable.
