Building contractors ride bicycles eight miles to work in Western Belize, Cayo District
Bullet Tree workers ride bicycles to work, all of eight miles to Hillview on the side of Green Parrot Valley. They have just finished tiling the floor in my daughter Sharon's little government built house about a short block away from me. Her house is a vacation house and hurricane shelter. Sharon lives in the Redlands, Homestead of Miami Dade County where she and her husband run a landscaping business for big hotels and government properties. These two guys were just arriving, if you watch the early morning sun shadows and I gave them a key for Sharon's house, as they are going to start plastering the ceiling inside this morning. Their names are Virgilio Garcia Jr. and Eugenio Garcia, two brothers and their telephone in Bullet Tree Falls is 667 1808. They borrowed my ladder this morning as well. Labor is tight in Cayo District, when workers have to ride bicycles eight miles away and house owners need laborers and skilled craftsmen.
