Flag of Belize  , Belize Cayes,
Thursday, April 30, 2009

Well, this wasn't in the plan, but its so much better than Player del Carmen and Cancun, funny how things work out. This is a well chilled out part of the Caribbean and when they say "welcome to Paradise" as you get off the water taxi it makes you instantly relax, which is just what we needed after a fraugth night/morning of calls to sort out how to get home. Terry in the travel office, Bri's mum and then STA on the case, it felt like an international rescue mission was underway....and the rush was to do what? Everything here is in sloooow motion and if you walk "too fast" they shout at you to slow down, my usual pace did get me into trouble a couple of times. The island is tiny and all the locals are really friendly and seem happy to have you invading. Its great to listen to them, their accent is a mix of creol & Jamacan and its delivered in that slow way that draws you in. The main drink in Belize is coconut rum and the punch is lethal......I discovered. Mable x

Well Mac wasn't at all annoyed at the change in travel plans once he hit the island.  Welcome to paradise indeed.  This was just what he needed to finish off the trip, although a beach full of topless babes would have been nice as well.  Mac and Mable took a short ride to the island of San Pedro to get some cash out as the ONLY machine on Caye Caulker stopped working, still it got them out for the morning and ment they could eat that night.  The last group meal was well washed down with rum punch and last farwells said.  Off home soon, Mac wonders if it will be 35c in England, will US Immigration be another mare, will the mosquito killler machine work tonight? oh sooo many questions.  Mac
