Moving to Belize: When Philadelphia Refinement Met Rustic Living in Belize
About Me
A transplanted Southerner, Philadelphia is not only my adopted home, I also work for the city's Fairmount Park. Within the borders of this largest city park in the U.S. remains the only extant collection of 18th-century villas in what was the 2nd largest Villa District in the world, after London's. As Ambassador/Guide for one of these gems, I do PR, speaking, and writing.

A venture to Belize with a friend in 2005 quickly turned into a crazy, year-long misadventure. Think of the 70's television comedy "Green Acres," where a citified wife follows her farm-bound husband. I "played" the wife in my Belize version of the age-old story of city boy meets the farm.

While I found no talking pigs named Arnold in Belize, like the TV show, plenty of characters and situations abounded - enough for a book. And a book I wrote recounting all the hilarity and tragedy of my "life on the - Belize - farm," where I mainly laugh at myself. The book contains more reality than the best Reality show.
