Today’s pics are a reminder to me of how much I enjoy being a part of the San Mateo Composting toilet project. Heather – Jo – Maureen – Tracy and I have so much fun driving around town – brainstorming – photo documenting and putting the puzzle pieces in place.  Big shout out to the mission group from United Methodist Church of Johnstown Colorado who came down to help out. You did a fantastic job gathering statistics and mapping out important information in the community.

    Al we need as much help as we can get for the project – everyone deserves a proper safe toilet. Any area in particular you are thinking of in regards to helping?

    It is hard for a Canadian socialist to see the squalor of San Mateo juxtaposed with the carefree lives of the rich and shameless on Ambergris.( no offence Laurie). The You Tube video by the 9 year old was rather interesting and well done. I think this place needs more than compost toilets. Roads, drainage, electricity, running water with antibiotics etc. Well gotta start somewhere. Need any help?

    Wow, sounds fun TG! Wish I could be there for San Pedro’s fest, but alas, we have plans. Will be going to Placencia’s though, so at least I’ll get one lobsterfest under my belt this year! Thanks for the great review…
