Yesterday at the pool Gwen mentioned how living here is a lot like camping – how you have to be prepared for anything and can often end up roughing it to some degree. As I was couch surfing last night and watching one of the geckos lives with us crawling across the wall it made me think about what she said and how it does take a certain kind of person to be able to thrive here. Resilience – patience – common sense and a good sense of humor are all a must.
Got a heads up that we will have a power outage this Sunday island wide from 6:00am – 12:00pm. You may want to unplug your valuables like lap tops and tv’s Saturday night even if on a surge protector. Got our BEL power bill from last month and surprisingly it was $102.77 bzd – that is the lowest it has been in a while.
Here is an interesting tidbit I read in Coast Zone news letter this morning …. Has a smoking gun been discovered that pushes sophisticated human civilization back to at least 12,000 years? At a site in in southeastern Turkey called Gobekli Tepe, circles of limestone columns weighing from 7 to 15 tons have been excavated, and there may be at least 250 more standing stones in 18 still-buried circles. The columns, which have been carbon-dated to 12,000 years ago, feature finely etched reliefs and sculptures depicting animals, humans, and other figures. Linda spoke with John Anthony West, who along with Robert Schoch, visited the site in May. This discovery lends credence to their theory that Egypt’s Sphinx is actually far older than most archaeologists suggest. Complete interview with West, and photos of the columns. Linda also touched on findings from a Brazil conference on the science and symbols of worldwide crop formations.
Today’s pic are a walk down memory lane from when Mitch and I went up to visit Zac at Las Terrazas Resort – get massages and have lunch at O restaurant. I sure wish I could teleport myself into those pictures right now.
