Think I' ve exhausted Belize City. Thank god, cable TV are showing 31 days solid of Oscar winners in the run up to this year's Oscar awards!

Thursday 3rd April. On the night bus from Tulum we get to the border about 4am and go through immigration from Mexico pay our 25US dollars each exit fee and then enter Belize after hauling our bags through the two checkpoints.Belize is English speaking so mo more Spanish for a while.
