12-18-2014 Headed to Belize City to get a car

A friend named Yuri who we went fishing with the other day knows of an Isuzu Trooper.  He picked Eric up at 7 A.M. and headed to Belize City.  Yuri has done many things in the past and he owned a used car dealership.  He is a good mechanic and has air tools and the whole nine yards. 

He negotiated like a seasoned professional.  He scored an Isuzu trooper with 130,000 miles for 9,000 Belize which is 4,500 American dollars.  That is the perfect car for the Belizean roads.

The Trooper got tons of new front end parts and all new shocks.  There are just a couple of parts that are on order and the 4 wheel drive will be trustworthy.  Yuri is a perfectionist and made the car like new again.

It is about 3.5 hours each way to Belize City from Hopkins. 

The Isuzu Trooper is just about the perfect car for Belize

On the way back the road was blocked because they were transporting a house that took up both lanes and then some

After we got back we headed to the Treetop Bar to tell some stories

The Treetop Bar is part of a hostel that is called The Funky Dodo
I snapped this picture of the front yard of the place we were is just about starting to be sunset and you can see just a hint of pink in the Horizon.
