Manuel has lived on Caye Caulker, Belize for all of his 81 years of life. He is healthy and smiles a lot. Every afternoon, Manuel sits in his electric golf cart (the only transportation other than bicycles on the island) and watches the water, as reflected here in his sunglasses. It was a pleasure staying in his beachfront hostel.
