P1050086 P1050080 P1050081 P1050082 P1050083 P1050084After driving thousands of miles through Mexico on both coast and through the middle of the county we were excited to get into out first Central American country, Belize.  After checking out of Mexico and crossing the bridge into Belize we felt a little relief, well actually a lot of relief. For one we knew that we were entering a country that the office language is English, we also knew that Belize is not very big and there are few roads so getting lost would not be to much of a problem, and figuring out the money with a two to one exchange rate with the US dollar for Belize dollars would make buying things easy. What we did not expect was the roads were rather bad, the internet was pretty much non-existent,  and the heat was unbearable. But hey, that’s what we were looking for, fun, travel and adventure and Belize did not disappoint us.

036Some things I noticed immediately is that Belize has a very diverse culture. I thought it was interesting to see many of the shopping food markets are owned and or run by the Chinese. I was truly stunned. I later learned that Belize is one of the most culturally diverse countries on the planet. You can get a lot more information by reading this ( http://www.country-studies.com/belize/the-cultural-diversity-of-belizean-society.html.)

007It was late afternoon and we had just crossed over and had to make the trek to Belize city. We had met a family over the internet via http://www.couchsurfing.org/search, and were invited to stay a night. Stay tuned to see how unbelizabe this turns out! Thanks for tuning in and liking our page.
