Well, since I was on a larger island, I decided to go have the spots on my arm checked out. The doctor was not at the pharmacy today but at the south office. Heh, only one island doctor. Well, I decided to maybe head off there, but the guy at the pharmacy said it doesn't look dangerous. By the end of the trip, it disappeared, so it really was nothing.
I had lunch at this nice place where they have marimba players while you eat
. There was a band of three of them and they actually built the marimba themselves on this island. It was crazy. And the restaurant had no floors, just sand. Ahhh. I had salbotes and they were nice with a little ceviche. Afterwards, I wandered around San Pedro, which is the big city in Caye Ambergris. The streets were busier and there were actual cars and motorized vehicles on the island. In fact there were paved roads; of which Caye Caulker had none. There were many tourist shops as well. I can see why this was more popular. This was the North American Caye. More for tourists and honeymooners than those that really wanted the island spirit. Caye Caulker was a little more destitute and rustic, but it was authentic. In fact, they call it La Isla Carinosa. The caring island. They had taken care of me, and I was very glad I was residing on Caye Caulker instead of San Pedro.
Heading back I almost missed the boat to Caye Caulker. It wasn't the last one, but I didn't want to wait an extra hour just for the boat. So when I went to the ticket office she told me to just go. I got on the boat without paying. Then we landed in Caye Caulker in no time. And I was home.
I could've gone on another snorkelling trip, because I just loved doing the first one. Or I could've gone to Belize City to see what it has to offer but I was tipped off there's nothing there. In the end, I went to see what the big deal is about Caye Ambergris. It's the more popular of the two Cayes, and I needed to know why.
