Now offering Food and Agriculture tours in Belize!

 Believe it or not, my year of dissertation research on food, tourism and identity in Placencia, Belize is winding to a close. Now that I have moved back to my home country I have to make a living. The ivory tower is not where I want to spend my whole life and career, I much rather spend time outdoors than staring at a computer screen and for that reason I have started a business. Its a small tour company named Cayequest Tours, based out of Placencia, Belize. We offer sea and inland tours of southern Belize and most importantly, we offer food and agricultural tours! I launched a chocolate tour in January (the first out of Placencia) and it has been going great. Spice farm, hot sauce factory and banana plantation tours are in the works. We even have a website (well, a blog). Check it out: Cayequest Tours.

If you have ever thought about coming to Belize for vacation, I hope you will come through Placencia and perhaps go on a tour with me! Although dissertation write up and tour company operation has been taking up a lot of time, I do not intend to abandon this blog. It has seen little activity over the past several years, but I do hope to continue to update, especially with recipes and thoughts on food in Belize. It it due to this blog that I am here in Placencia, doing what I am doing, and loving it, so I want to keep giving back to the blogger community out there and contributing to information on the web about food in Belize. I hope you will keep reading and check back for future updates!

Good morning how are you?

My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

For all this I would ask you one small favor:
Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Belize? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Belize in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

Emilio Fernandez Esteban
Calle Valencia, 39
28903 Getafe (Madrid)

If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

Yours Sincerely

Emilio Fernandez
