79).  The Beach at Placencia    Placencia, Belize (March 2009)

I returned again to Belize in the spring of 2009 and spent several days there doing volunteer work with a group of 20 college students from New York University (NYU).  We built a school room and playground near San Ignacio, then I took off and explored southern Belize, my first visit to that part of the country.  On my first afternoon, I pulled into the village of Placencia on the Caribbean coast and rented this beachside cottage, complete with hammock.  I spent that evening lolling under the stars, listening to Jimmy Buffett music and eating hot habanero peppers or trying to eat them, I should say.
