Dennis Wolfe’s “Another Gringo in Belize” A collection of Jokes and Songs inspired by and based in Belize and her inhabitants

Our parent company, The San Pedro Sun, is a weekly labor of love that takes a mix of community/local news, national stories and even press releases to make up one well rounded newspaper. Included in that mix is the weekly Wolfe’s Woofer, which is a joke column featuring local, colorful characters.

Tasting my first Boil Up

I’ll be honest; when I wrote down my list of foods to try out, I legitimately was dreading the thought of Boil Up. Individually, each ground food is not my favorite.

So you can imagine how difficult it is to understand how one 75 square-mile site could have housed half our current population.
