After Orange Walk, An Unexpected Night in Belize City

I am here in rainy Belize City.  My fault really.  Yesterday I visited the amazing Lamanai Mayan Ruins (SO green after all of this rain),

hopped on a 3:30pm bus from Orange Walk town (aka Suga City) to Belize City and missed the last boat, the 5:30pm, to Ambergris.

Here’s the Old Masters’ Rum headquarters in Orange Walk in all its Christmas finery.

For those of you lacking in knowledge of Belize geography, here is a map.   Pffffft…schools these days!

And note to self:  stay off the road between Belize City and OW in the early morning hour.

So I spent the night at a LOVELY spot in Belize City and ate delicious Indian food at my very favorite, Sumathi.  A spicy Tikka Masala with naan bread always sets things right.

Plus, I’ll be back in San Pedro by lunch time.  Perfect.

Now if only this rain would stop…
