|Cute interior. Looks okay. I guess we'll try it.|
|The house cat sat with us (and begged food) while we ate. Everyone liked their food (omelets and smoothie), so it was a win.|
|Eric's step-father, John, grew up on a farm, so he wanted to see what farming was like in Belize. Our friend, Gilly, works on |
a farm (mostly sugarcane, corn and soybeans) in the Cayo District (in western Belize), and he was happy to give us a tour.
|One machine is harvesting the sugarcane, and the other two vehicles go along beside to catch the good stuff.|
|Those little vehicles then dump their loads of good stuff in bigger collection trucks that then go to the sugar mill.|
|The sugarcane harvester.|
|Just some of the big farm equipment.|
|This one is Belizean made to be able to go through the muckiest of areas without getting stuck.|

|After the farm tour we drove to nearby Spanish Lookout, the big Mennonite community, and drove around a bit before |
stopping for lunch at Sisters Diner, which a friend had recommended.
|It's a cute place and the food was good.|
|Spanish Lookout is full of green, perfectly manicured lawns, because that's how the Mennonites roll.|
