I have to get this story down before I forget it. This is a true story, no lie, and it just happened minutes ago.
I am inside today at the K’ay Kook Hotel watching college football all day. I got two computers going. At halftime I ran up to the corner to get me some chicken to go to bring home. So I am standing there while they cook my chicken on the grill, and there is another guy there I have seen around. I have seen him on the malecon, and several places in town. We were standing there, and I introduced myself, I knew he already knew who I was I am sure.
He asked me some questions about what I do and everything. We then got around to the topic that I used to live in Belize. He said he did also, and he lived in Corozal. I told him I used to live in Corozal, and he said he knew, he had seen me there. So I asked what brings you to Mahahual, and then he told me, “I got shot in Belize, so I left”.
He then showed me his arm where he got shot. He said after that, he decided to leave and come here. He then told me Belize has gotten real dangerous. I then told him, “Tell me about it”, grabbed my lunch and headed back to my room. I did not ask him where or why he got shot, just told him, I will see him around.
I swear you can’t make these things up.
