Report from the Belize Earthship Retrofit Project

Here’s the latest update from the Rumble in the Jungle. You’ll see our workforce, 7 Mayan Machines 18-61 yo. (Raul, Dick, Sessario, Benito, Darius, Rudolfo, Barfilio), a earthship apprentice (Nick; MN), 2 WWOOFers (Kayla & Alex; NY www.wwoof.com) and the clients (Alisa & Richard). Working steady, and live for the 10:30 a.m. fresh coconut break. Great interest, brewing from international ex-pats.
Unfortunately, we waited t0o long to pick up the K’iche’ language, maybe next time. Were able to attend the Mayan Day celebration and they celebrated with a deer dance, similar to the Taos Pueblo although much hotter. (It’s a wet hot, unlike Taos).
I think my computer will short out as the sweat runs endlessly, even though we have acclimated. Made a trip to Punta Gordo today, and got to withness a real power black-out! Doesn’t seem to have much effect on the locals (nor us).
One more week and we’ll head home and then????????
All the best.
