McAfee? Give Up This Game. Here’s A Bit of The Real San Pedro, Belize

The John McAfee situation is international headlines.  It’s just past 6am here in San Pedro and I’ve already watched stories on CNN and ABC’s Good Morning America.  Reporters from around the world seem to be descending on our town and thankfully most seem to be making one thing clear…the is NOT the norm in Belize.  Belizeans are just as baffled as anyone else by McAfee’s insane actions.  Our Prime Minister Dean Barrow called McAfee’s actions “bonkers”.  I could not agree more.  Way to straight talk, Mr. Barrow.This is how I picture him hiding right now.

San Pedro, Belize is a small, tightly knit community on the gorgeous barrier reef that completely relies on tourism.  While McAfee was busy burying himself in the sand, making countless phone calls to any press that would listen to him, apparently watching “RawHide” with his girlfriend (see @joshuadavisnow on Twitter) and acting like a totally selfish prick and egomaniac, here is what I was seeing yesterday.

McAfee?  Give it up.

And John, how about you hook a lowly blogger up and give me a call?  Or feel free to post on my Facebook page.
