People are extra friendly. So what if if the sidewalks have a few holes...
or the neighbour is not a handyman? Just relax... and tell it like it is...

January 11   Belize City to San Ignacio, very short trip

Only two hours lots of fruit trees and I bought Birkenstocks...

January 12   San Ignacio is very small but now they found oil and are exporting it...

So these may be the last photos of San Ignacio as a quaint, quiet place.

3000 years ago people built, nature reclaimed its soil... When will she reclaim it again?...
