Island work idea is fizzling.  Too many logistics getting testing back in a 72 hour timeframe.  Not wanting to risk flying there, test positive, and spend two weeks in their isolation chambers.

Has anyone been to Belize?

15 years ago we snuba’d there off a private island as part of a cruise excursion. They had also had scuba, snorkeling, a beach with some floating things & a shack with rum punch/sandwiches. My dad got to talking to the guys running it and said they made the equivalent of $15k/year & were some of the richest people in town. He asked if they’d jump to do the same for a new company in a different island for $20k/year & they all said absolutely. He still thinks about starting something similar. We just have no idea how much you have to bribe to get in with whoever book that stuff. He knows it won’t be cruises, but with travel agents, etc.
I got a guy on the other line about some white walls

i have no plans to travel currently, but if i did, mexico, turkey and croatia would be among my top five choices pandemic or no pandemic, so joke's on the virus.
