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!
The bus ride isn’t far in distance (in fact, my Belize City taxi driver last night told me that after a big night of drinking at the club, he and his friends like to drive up to Orange Walk – 45 minutes – at 5am just for the tacos!)
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…
