Make Your Own Simple, Sweet Reality In BelizeJune 27, 2010, Chaa Creek, Belize: Belize's Cayo District is a frontier land of opportunity.
"We make our own reality. This life, here in the Cayo of Belize, this is the reality we choose to make."

Dear Overseas Opportunity Letter Reader,
Mick Fleming is a larger-than-life character, a Brit who, more than 30 years ago, with US$600 in his pocket, made his way to Belize City, where he met a guy in a bar who owned a piece of land in the jungle he was interested in selling. Mick bought, thinking he'd try his luck as a farmer. The farming was tough going, but, in time, Mick identified another opportunity. Travelers were beginning to find their way to this remote region. They'd happen upon Mick and ask if he had a place where they could spend the night.
