Belize was nothing like I imagined it will be. I LOVED it and stayed more days than planned. On my second day, I met Barry who introduced me to some wonderful people. Together we had fun in Belize, we had lunch in a house in the middle of the sea (the house has a swimming pool right in the middle of the sea -amazing, right. The boys cooked and Kelly made the best pina coladas ever. The next day we visited San Pedro (that Island Madonna sang about – la Isla bonita) with Barry as our guide.
I rode with Kelly & Pam (2 of the wonderful people Barry introduced me to) in a rented car to San Ignacio, we went to the market on the Guatemala side of the border and drove to Hopkins. While there, I took a day visit to Dangriga with Isabelle (another of the great people I was introduced to -she has a tour company in Hopkins, so if you need one will put you through) and I saw a Nigerian (yes I was HAPPY, after 8 months on the road, it felt good to see one of us), they had a Nigerian church and stores that sell Nigerian movies (Nigerian movies are a big deal in Belize). It was sad to leave but definitely I will be going back – I loved everything about Belize and I stayed in a cool hostel right in front of the beach at Caye Caulker.
