Feb 10, 2012 - Back in Belmopan

We are back in the capital city of Belmopan. When we were here before I wanted to visit a national park that is nearby but it rained both days that I was here. Thought I would give it another try. Staying at a different hotel this time, call the Hibiscus, which is conveniently located within walking distance of the bus station and restaurants.

Jan 30, 2012 - Belmopan

We got up early and got a ride to the bus station. We got on the bus heading north, not knowing where we would spend the night because of the washed-out bridge. It was not raining and by the time we got to the bridge, the water had subsided and we got across. It was a long day. Five hours on a school bus. We are now in the city of Belmopan, the capital of Belize. With a population of only about 20,000, Belmopan is one of the smallest captial city in the world. We are staying at a nice place called the Belmopan Bed and Breakfast.

Mar 3, 2010 - ok where was i?

Ok so he heard the dogs barking by a little cabana that he rents out. He went to investigate but was cautious because he thought maybe the people staying there were just "doin the do" and he surely did not want to interupt them. he saw nothing suspicious so he returned to his activities in the screen porch. when he saw movement in the bushes by the river he went to poke around, making sure everything was as it should be. just as he was surveying the wall of jungle that borders his back yard from his point on the river bank, he was struck...

Feb 22, 2010 - IM officially a waitress now

Yes i have now successfully waited a table! Last night i followed the lead of Paul while he waited on a group of FbI agents on a business trip. Many high status people stay here apparently. Its a very nice, not to fancy, high quality little resort accommodations place. Well run with an attention to integrity. I get good vibes from the owners. Paul is very trusting and fairly laid back, but i have yet to see him pissed off. His wife works very hard and i am already fond of her. Last night she brought me and devon Milky ways as a bed time...

Mar 31, 2008 - San Ignacio

Saa gik turen videre fra Guatemala til Belize. Ventetiden ved graenseovergangen var lang og enooormt varm, men allerede ved 2 tiden kom vi frem til San Ignacio; mindre graenseby i Belize. Vi bor paa en basecamp i skoven. Primitive toiletforhold, vil Martin nok mene, men heldigvis er hytterne hermetisk lukket, saa vi slipper for edderkopper og slanger i sengen. Bag ved vores hytte har der de sidste 8 aar holdt en 6 meter lang boa-slange til, vaeldigt betryggende, og netop som jeg skriver er vores amerikanske "vaerts-familie" paa vej hen for...

Jan 22, 2007 - San Ignacio BZ including zoo

We got in late because we made an unplanned side trip to Belmopan because one of our guests wanted to buy groceries from a 'real' grocery store. Well the store could almost be called a small town store, parking for maybe 10 cars. We parked along a dead end street, and had to back out. Unfortunately, it was not just off our route, but rather about 25 miles round trip. We even got lost for a few minutes. Belmopan is the new capital of Belize. It was founded in 1970 as a planned city, when the old capital in Belize City was devestated by a...

Jan 20, 2007 - Corozal Belize border

We made it through Mexico. This caravan does not really highlight Mexico as it is more of a Central America and Panama tour. And we have already covered nearly 50% of the miles of getting to Panama - 1475 miles of the 3000 miles to Panama City. The border crossing went much better than what our expectation based on last years problems with an over zealous inspector. The cost of getting through the border, plus the cost of mandated insurance, did not help 'welcome' us to Belize. We are looking forward to the tour to the Laminai Ruins....

Jan 14, 2007 - Jungle Boat tour to Lamanai Ruins

Belize was somewhat of a disappointment. Very poor country, and people seemed to lack enthusiasism. Maybe we need to 'stray' into the hills for some nature. It is known for 'birding' and we did not go much beyond the main road. However, our boat trip up to the Laminai Ruins was fun and interesting, but not nearly as well developed as Palenque and El Tajin in Mexico which we saw earlier. Our guide did give us a nice jungle tour.
