The Cape Cod of Belize
We started the day by eating breakfast from what we had in our bags so we could get moving faster. We loaded the bikes quickly but it still seemed to take a long time to get moving. The day was sticky-hot and it wasn't even noon yet.
Leaving town we stopped and filled up with fuel and each had a cold drink and some ice cream. It was funny to have the staff at the gas station hear Aaron had ridden from England and not say anything but here I came from Alaska and get very excited.
We rode the length of town before beginning to ask around and search for housing. We did a full loop of the main town that took long enough that we were both agitated. One local tried to "help us" far too eagerly to the point that it made us both angry and wary of where he wanted us to go. We ended up going back to the Sail Fish Inn where we had to leave bikes on one side of the small river and get shuttled across by the small power boat they used to go back and forth with guests. Though the sign said $20 US, that didn't include the taxes so once we were already across and tired we just said fuck it and signed in anyway.
