You would think that waking up early for a 20 minute bus ride to a river, then a 45 minute boat ride through a river/swamp system would be a boring way to get around but on the contrary I found it to be the idea way to travel. There is something about boats, Belize and water. More boats please!
Anyway we spent the day walking through a cool rain forest and climbing increasingly taller temples. Trees everywhere with constant humidity which goes hand in hand with rain forests. "Do not pick up anything off the ground!" said the tour guide as he talked constantly about everything related to the Mayan's and the temples and the alignment. Good fun. You can read more about the site on wikipedia
That last temple was so tall you can see the river in the distance above the rain forest canopy. It was truly breath taking. Blue skies all day.
On the highway
On the river
Many small temples
You can see the river off in the distance
Really tall and steep. I hesitated at first
These are horseballs
Temples built on top of temples. It has all been one before.
The rope is not just for show. It is pretty steep.

Spent a week with my sister in the land of never ending highways, grass and coconut trees.
When ever you see a old car it stands out like a thumb
No dogs? :(
But I guess you can have duck for dinner.

Random Pics from around the City of Belize from back in August 2014. I am never sure of what things I need to capture. I just take photos on a whim.
St. John's Cathedral. Historical Site
Boiled Corn vender. Salt and Lime optional.

Is it ever too early to have a beer? You want to be at the edge of the world where the days are never ending and all you have are you inhibitions and bad influence. No evening appointments. You do what you want for as long as you can. Believing beer is the beer of Belize. I had 7 bottles could have been more if the bottles didn't keep disappearing. View OpenStreetMap

It all depends on which direction you coming from but it's pretty nice once you get there. Rough waves and chilly water at this time of the year.
