Even hotter and sweatier in Caye Caulker

I met Katie at the airport and we stayed our first night at the very welcoming D'Nest Inn just outside of Belize City, where we joined our hosts for a birthday celebration and plenty of discussion about family, politics and Belize.

In the morning, we caught the water taxi to Caye Caulker and plodded around the island searching for a hotel that wasnt full or extortionate. Our first night we ended up at Tom's which was cheap but basic. The fan worked (although the walls were stained with a mysterious orange liquid that had obviously reached the wall at some velocity at the level of the ceiling fan). My alarm clock read 98' at the end of day and we showered and lay motionless sweating until we drifted fitfully off to sleep. The next day we moved into the Maxhapan Cabanas with air conditioning.....ahhh.

From Caye Caulker we had hoped to do a 3 day sailing cruise down to Placencia but the normal Tuesday depature had been cancelled due to national holiday on Monday, so we opted for a full day sailing and snorkeling trip to the reef, where we swam with sting rays and nurse sharks and thousands of fish.

Hey Mike,

Nice read. It looks like the fun continues. I've heard the diving in Belize is nonpareil. I kinda wish I were there too. I just returned from London (Sarah returns in a few days).

You are a long way from Covent Garden.

Me despido cordialmente,
