Our piece of paradise

We'd seen this property listed several places and decided to put it on our list. Macarena Rose took us to look at it. This was our first trip to Belize, so hadn't experienced the intricacies of the road system. Sorry, that's a pretty bad joke. Bullet Tree road hadn't been paved yet, so that was a trip unto itself and then we headed down Paslow Falls Rd. Following the river was lovely, but then Macarena turned to the left and headed up the hill, on what looked like a field of tall grass. She assured us that under it all was a roadbed. We climbed and climbed and finally got to the top of the ridge where she stopped and said, this is it. What? The bush was impenatrable. We were looking at 12.735 acres of ?? We actually had no idea where we were or what we were looking at. Oh well.

We even traveled to the coast and had already been to the north, but felt that Cayo was the most comfortable for us. To make a long story short, we kept coming back to this little unknown piece of land and decided to buy it. I won't go into the ins and outs of buying, but it was eventually accomplished.
