Having been in Belize for over a week, the highlight of the expedition, a trip to a Mayan Temple, was to be the next day. After spending the day relaxing and snorkeling on South Caye, we had arrived back at our motel rather late in the evening.
Fierce storms were in the area,and it was doubtful because of high water and flooding as to whether we would still be able to make the trip to the ancient Mayan pyramid.
It consisted of boating up the Maya River for 45 minutes and then hacking our way for five hours through the jungle with machetes, staying over night, sleeping in sleeping bags and returning the next day. I was all for adventure, but the longer I remained in the jungle , the less I thought this might be a good idea,(those snakes are awfully big) I think I had reached the limit of my adventurous soul.
As we approached the boat dock and headed for the motel I had lagged behind the rest, it was fascinating being near the ocean while the storms raged out at sea! I watched for some time, listening to the thunder and being held in awe of the lightning reflecting off the clouds .
The storm appeared to be getting closer, it seemed to be time to go for shelter if I didn’t want to become a lightning rod. The group consisted of five, three women and two men and were thus divided up in separate adjoining rooms. As I entered my room, I heard voices coming from the adjoining room where the ladies were staying, yelling for me to come inside because of the approaching storm.

Being I was already inside, I became confused as to why they were yelling. I stepped out on the balcony and inquired as to why they were yelling at me when I wasn’t down on the boat dock. I scared the living daylights out of them, they swore that I had been standing on that boat dock until the very second that I spoke to them.
It was rather unnerving to all concerned, three people saw me on that boat dock when I wasn’t on it, they couldn’t have all been seeing something that wasn’t there. Is it possible , as the Aborigines believe, that when someone visits an area, they leave an aura that can bee seen forever! That is how the Aborigine Trackers track someone across solid rock and find lost travelers in the Outback.
We all had a good laugh about it and blamed it on the beer we had consumed, but not that much beer had been drank. However the fact that I did have a vague memory of contact with some sort of alien beings while standing on that dock haunted me. The trip was ultimately canceled, I had made contact with the ET’s ,(their ship was behind the storm clouds), I was counseled in the fact I no longer needed to trek into the jungle, it was to my best interest to avoid the situation.
I also sensed that for a while at least, part of me remained standing there,while the rest of me walked to my room.
Do we leave an image that can be seen consciously or subconsciously by other people,did it happen because I had possibly made contact with ET’s?
Guess that is for each of us to decide in our own way.

It doesn’t take long to discover that Belize is a land of contrasts. From the poverty and disarray of the cities to the quiet countryside, many differences are soon found. With poverty and crime running rampant in cities such as Belize City and Belmopan, the traveler has to be constantly aware of his surroundings and protect whatever is being carried. Remember,that camera hanging around your neck is worth more than the average Belizean earns in a year. All that aside, the Mayan people are wonderfully warm people many of whom go out of their way to please visitors. Traveling into the countryside one discovers thatch roof homes with no doors or windows. Because of the warm climate , they can live comfortably all year with a gentle breeze flowing through the open windows and doors.
