34. Progress

I made it to Placencia, Belize and since we can't seem to leave, inernet access isn't as far off as I thought. Access is free from The Purple Space Monkey. And if you don't mind that your fingers stick to the keyboard, you can sit here for as long as you like. The original plan was to meet in Belize City, but two tropical depressions hit and the Boat Boys couldn't make it up. Instead, I caught an island hopper to Placencia. I didn't mind as I fell in love with Placencia on our first trip to Belize back in 2005. It's quaint, coastal and boasts the skinniest sidewalk in the world. See.

As quaint as it is, it hasn't avoided progress. Street signs have gone up since the last time we were here. The Mr is particularly fond of this one. I can not imagine why...

We're tied up at the Placencia Yacht Club, with anchored boats in the background. Don't get too excited. It's not a glamorous yacht club yacht club, but has a nice dock with an outdoor shower, a bar called Tranquillo that serves a mean Rum Punch and $2 beers, entertaining characters and has kept us pretty stable during the crazy evening storms. And because of all of that, we seem to have no immediate plans to leave.
