Tamarra’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 03 Aug 2010

Location: Caya Caulker, Belize

MapYesterday was a travel day. Woke, ate, and then waited for the local bus to Belize city! The first bus was tooo packed! So we waited for the next. I went in the back door and saved seats then grabbed my pack. By the time we were about to sit someone had taken one of the seats. This insued a big fight, where I dug my feet in and told the lady to"GET UP NOW". After much arguing and maybe some threatening, not from me. We were defeated by a big black woman! After about 40minutes another seat became available and we sat the majority of the 3 hour trip. We caught the boat in the nick of time. The 45 minute trip to the island was nice. Then we spent 1 1/2 hours trying to find a reasonably priced guesthouse. And this is the cheap island I can only imagine how much San Pedro must cost! Either way we have a beach front, airconditioned room, with TV and a good bed and shower for $40 U.S a night. Breaking the budget here. My lobster dinner for $15 was deluxe! And Alyssa is still alive in the land of seafood and coconut! It is pouring today and the rest of the week doesn't look much better. The Blue Hole seems so close yet so far! Chat soon, Hugs, T & A
