 I had the pleasure of ringing in the New Year’s in beautiful Belize.We booked a villa at one of director (maestro)Francis Coppola’s resort. To our dismay we found out that a terrible hurricane had hit the country 6 months prior and that some villas were still being rebuilt , including ours. To our surprise , we were given a first class Italian lunch and a beautiful 2 story , 6 bedrooms villa with private pool outside the resort. I felt like Michael Corleone…
