When I hopped on a JAM PACKED water taxi yesterday at 10am on a bright sunny blustery morning – I realized I wasn’t the only one headed to Belize City for the day.
Below are two maps from the Moon Guides…that show where the water taxi comes in…and the surrounding area. And then the greater Belize City area. I’ve marked up a bit…where I was. To give you a sense.
And then about 14,000 pictures because SO MANY THINGS were happening yesterday in the country’s largest city.
Take a look.
It’s a 1.5 hour ride from San Pedro to Belize City. I met the boat at Central Park. Our town was gearing up for last night’s Christmas tree lighting.
Anway…back to the Christmas Fair.
Inside – all sorts of made in Belize goodies. Cloth tote bag used for jams and honeys and ginger products.
I bought a Guava Jam and Mango Jam.
And a LARGE squeeze bottle of Belize honey.
The crystallized ginger is going to be SOOOO good in a Gingerbread Loaf and the syrup? I’m just going to pour on everything. It’s like a spicy dark simple syrup. Make my own ginger ale? Yes please. With cheese and yogurt…on oatmeal? Yum.
There was local wine in flavors like cashew and pineapple – about 15 varieties.
Doesn’t she make you want to buy that uber-chic fanny pack?
And then the jewelry! I want these earrings!
Both ladies will be in San Pedro over the coming month for your Christmas shopping.
It was time for me to head out. With about an additional 5lbs in my load. I was going to walk towards Belize City…along the highway to Brodies – one of the biggest supermarkets in all of Belize and then to gawk at the beautiful Christmas decorations at Mirab’s Department Store.
I passed some cool looking local eateries…
And the Traveller’s Rum museum and bottling plant.
I have so much more…so I will hold off until tomorrow.
