|The drive on the Hummingbird Highway is beautiful. (Cara didn't have her camera in the right mode, so that's why you see |
that ghost effect on the tree.)
|The highway takes you through the mountains - an incredible sight.|
|The mountain jungles are dense and lush.|
|This concrete building in Belmopan (housing a pharmacy and other businesses) is typical of construction throughout Belize.|
|This is one of many areas of the Market in Belmopan. (Market days are Tuesdays and Fridays.)|
|We ate lunch at some food stalls by the Market. Eric had a meal of fish, beans & rice, salad and green bananas.|
After Belmopan we continued on to the Mennonite town of Spanish Lookout. Apparently, there is actually a sizeable Mennonite population in the country, and it's because of them that fresh milk and cheese are readily available throughout Belize.
|We stopped at Farmers Trading Company, which is kind of like the Belizean/Mennonite version of Wal-mart.|
|We all found plenty of things we needed here, including some things we didn't know we needed until we saw them.|
|Yuri had to stop here for some car parts. This is definitely one of the most "modern" buildings we've seen here in Belize.|
|We stopped at Western Dairies for a treat of ice cream. Their drive-thru (the first we've seen here) was closed due to this |
construction. Quite the expansion - they must be doing well.
