PlacenciaJune 26, 2015 in Belize ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C
Back on the chicken buses today where we discover what the Belizian etiquette is with regards to queing- 1. Seniors go first. 2. A complete free for all where everyone pushes you, mothers and children out of the way. The bus is packed and we somehow end up at the back of the queue, the bus attendant doesnt let us on, "Bus full, wait for the next one (in an hour!)" except as soon as we get off 3 more people hop on! Oi! Eventually he feels sorry for us because we have a connecting bus to catch, so crams us on and insists we sit down.. we squish in 3 to each bench seat. 2 minutes down the road apparently standing is ok again and they stop to let more people on the bus!
Anyhoo, we make it to Placencia eventually and its very nice.. its set right on the beach and has a much more local feel than Caye Caulker. Trav has found us an amazing airbnb place and we have the whole house to ourselves! Homemade shrimp linguine for dinner :-)
Sunny day tomorrow for our snorkeling trip please!Read more
