Belize (Adbusters)

This is a piece I wrote about Belize, a tiny Central American nation with a horrendously high homicide rate, for Adbusters, a graphic art-oriented, activist magazine published out of Vancouver, B.C. My own trip to Belize in 2000 was marred by a double homicide right outside my hotel room, which may or may not have been connected to my friend’s wallet being stolen that same night — after we went to the only disco on Caye Caulker. Luckily, the thief left my friend’s passport, otherwise we might still be there.
