Author Nuñez at Isla Bonita Elementary

San Pedro’s prominent writer and author of “Twenty Five Years Ago” addressed the students of standards five and six at Isla Bonita Elementary School. The address was possible upon an invitation of Teacher Sharon, the head teacher for standard five. Students at that institution are using the book “Twenty Five Years Ago” as an extra resource English/reading book. After completing the reading of the early chapters, Angel Nuñez was invited to talk about some aspects of life in San Pedro in the past.

Mr. Nuñez commented that the children were so enthused in asking a variety of questions that the dismissal bell was rung and they kept pouring out with questions. “They wanted to know about doctors, school, teachers, boats, ice, electricity, midwives, food, cost of living, and most important what young people and children did to entertain themselves,” said Angel Nuñez.

Author Nuñez says he is grateful and honored that San Pedro High School and Isla Bonita are using and benefitting from his writings and recollections of San Pedro in the past. He invites everyone living in San Pedro to read the book and use history to help us better live in the present.

Copies of the book may be obtained at Ambergris Today, Lala’s Store, Chico’s Meat Shop, San Pedrano’s Stationery, Ambergris Jade, Blu, Richie’s Supermarket, The Library, and from him personally. Friends who would like an autographed copy may bring their books to Ambergris Today. Purchases from abroad may be made for $15 U.S including postage to Angel Nunez, P.O. Box 23, San Pedro Town, Belize.
