The strangled remains of a doomed sugar mill can be found in the jungles of Belize, at the Mayan Ruin site called Lamanai.
Lamanai (submerged Crocodile) was the reason we visited Orange Walk and booked a fast boat to traverse the New River, on our way to the remote site. (Our guides navigated the narrow river like James Bond escaping a first-class villain) The sugar mill created by the Hyde and Hodge Company in 1860, paid Chinese workers with rum! Every brick arrived by boat, but because of poor design and unschooled sugar/rum workers, the mill failed.
Now, the sweet ruins are a bonus side trip. Follow my lens...
Made in New Orleans.
I love this shot.
We could all use a little rum during this Pandemic.
