Tour of Barzakh Falah

April 18, 2010

On Thursday the Youth trainees, language teachers, and I visited the construction site of an orphanage named, Barzakh Falah,  along the Western Highway in Georgeville Village, Belize.  Jamie Marin is lead the architect and he and his wife Nancy, are spear heading the initiative thanks to land deed given to them in a will left to the family from Nancy’s dad.  With every corner I kept saying wow, incredible, etc.  It may have been a little annoying to those close by. 

Sustainability is coming from; Moringa trees, talapia fish ponds, human waste composting, minimal firewood outdoor cooking stove and oven combo; future plans for a wind generated washing machine, Iranian styled adobes that create their own “A/C” during the day and that is hurricane and earthquake proof thanks to their doomed structure.  So much Mennonite influence.  So highly impressive.  I hope the orphanage is seen through!

 Find out what Barzakh Falah means at the organization’s website, developed by my fellow Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Jeff Frank’s University of Vermont study abroad students:

Travis Owning the Podium

March 2, 2010

Not many people look down at the bar during a high jump competition. Or is it a high forward flip competition?  Travis is the high jumper in the striped brown and orange shirt from Lucky Strike Village and just a freshman in high school.  If any college track team is out there needing the most purely athletic kid known to man let me know.  Maybe he could earn a gold medal for you too.
