Official business made me travel to Belize City. Yeah, everyone tells me it’s more dangerous, but I have to see for myself.
Sadly I have to leave Room 5 at the Rainforest Haven Inn. I will miss the view of the roundabout – there was always something going on: Dogs crossing the busy intersection, bikes driving in the wrong direction, the icecream truck stopping for a few minutes smack bang in the middle of the crossing because a couple of kids wanted to buy… <Sigh>
I discovered that I can use Google Maps on my phone. Type in the route while still connected through WiFi and off you go. Now I will only pass the same building twice before I realise I drive in circles ..haha..
My Facebook friends recommended Villa Boscardi. It’s really nice and clean! I have the green room 🙂 WiFi is great! The bed is massive! And the aircon … wonderful cool air!
Of course, I can’t sit still for long. So I took a stroll down the road.
Excuse the lousy quality. I only had my phone with me.
Shopping in Belize City is great! In San Ignacio I only found these small shops to buy groceries. No way that you can buy what you need – you buy what you get!
Just down the road from where I stay in Belize City, is a huge supermarket: Brodie’s
.. and here I thought shopping in Belize would be a problem ..haha..
After the shopping spree I decided to take a drive around town before it gets too late. Okay, now Belize City definitely reminds me of South Africa! I have seen a lot in my days, but this sight made me stop and take out the camera. I uploaded the picture in it’s original size, so that you can zoom in.
Have you ever seen a main road going through a cemetery ??? There are even graves in the green that divides the lanes !!!
I think that’s enough for today. 2 nights in Belize City should be enough to tick that town off my list.
