Shorty after my detention, the Government of Belize lobbied Guatemala to have my access to the Internet cut off. This would have crippled my ability to fight what was happening. I had anticipated this and had a plan.
The Guatemalans, by the way, have been as nice to me as my own family. The guards and orderlies have been supportive and have treated me with kindness. The officials have been apologetic and pointed to the upcoming peace accord with Belize as a problem. I understood and told them “no problem”
I arranged to surreptitiously access a tiny laptop. On the second day a guard caught me and just smiled. “Bien” he said.
Belize officials were reading my blog constantly so I could not post under my own name. Hence, my friend Harold let me use his name. Apparently it worked.
A couple of times I logged in as myself for a while just to confuse an already confused beaurocracy in Belize. I would like to thank Harold for lending me his name by the way.
You guys have been great.
P.S. I told no-one the real reason for Harold’s existence until now. Also, I apologize for all the comments I deleted from you clever folks who figured out that Harold was me. I hope you are no longer offended.
