e just got back from another wonderful summer escape to Belize. My life long friends Reg Hirons and Will Fitzpatrick, both from San Francisco joined us and suprisingly they had never met before in all of my trips to the city. Reg owns Funky Furniture, 1100 Folsom (@ 7th), South of Market. Will is the lawyer for a large philanthropy. See all the photos --> here.
We stayed at Casa Bonita, about a mile north of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. They have finally completed the fixed bridge connecting the northern end of the peninsula to San Pedro making the commute much easier. We went fishing on the reef and spent numerous evenings drinking copious amounts of alcohol discussing family, love, science and of course politics. We all took turns cooking and the BBQ was well worn. I ran into all of the old San Pedro crew including Eddie (the dive instructor at Amigos del Mar), Shaggy (bartender at Fido's) and Lori (from Coconets days).
Jinny and I retraced our path to Belize through Chetumal spending a night at the Condesa df, a wonderfully modern boutique hotel in the Condesa district of Mexico City. A definite highlight was an exquisite meal at La Biela, a delightfully delicious and colorful Argentine steak house nearby.
