Under ordinary circumstances it can be difficult to talk to Bifferham Lewis Carrington III, but when he has just bought an island with a cashout of his canned banana stocks it can get extremely irritating.
‘It’s just a small island off the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize with about two miles of beach facing one of the world’s most spectacular coral reefs,’ he said, smacking his lips after taking a long swig of Evian.
‘Oh, did I mention the island has its own bay and is just full of marine life, which you know what that means for a sportsman like myself,’ Bufferham let slip, as we opened our mouth to say something.
‘The infrastructure is all set, too. Water, electricity, fresh drinking water from two native wells, biking paths lined with palm trees, and modern but ec-friendly cabins, caretakers’ homes, lodge and bar/restaurant, and of course those fabulous Belize sunsets,’ he added, digging into a slab of chocolate cake.
Gorko field reporter Young Tony was about to say, ‘We have never been to Belize, it sounds extremely expensive,’ when Bifferham concluded the conversation with, ‘Whelp, I guess I’ll take the bill now,’ and we put his lunch on the proffered Amecks Gold Card.
