You Betta Belize It

sorry I couln't help myself with the corny title...and you can be sure there will be more to come :)

San Pedro, Ambergris Cay, Belize

We are hiding out in San Pedro, Belize this week trying to get some work done.  For Ethan this means actual work, and for me this means updating the blog!  Rough work week. 

It has been quite difficult to find the trifecta work environment:  reliable wifi, an electrical outlet, and a view.  One or two is usually good, but the wifi thing has really been difficult to come by.  At this very moment we are in the back room of a hostel that we are not staying at, mooching off of their air-conditioning and wifi, and listening to a bar full of backpackers playing trivia.  It works.  They have Belikin.

We have been here on Ambergris Caye for a week, and were on mainland Belize for 2 weeks before that.  Belize is amazing.  I honestly didn't know much about the country except for the fact that our two wonderful friends from Hawaii are from here (and are the nicest peeps), and that my parents have been coming every year for 7 years now to do a medical mission trip.  I always figured Belize must be great to keep pulling them back...and now I see for myself that it is.

Belizians are the happiest people.  The country is diverse and beautiful with tropical rainforests, jungles, white sand beaches, caribbean isles, monkeys, toucans, jaguars, Mayan ruins, a barrier reef, cosmopolitan cities, and a very laid back attitude.  I am in love.

I am trying to go back and fill in the missing pieces of our travels up until now.  I will post-date them to keep everything in the correct timeline, so you may notice some "old" unread unread blog posts pop up here and there.  Hopefully I can catch up soon.  Thanks for reading!
