Photos of Belize

without comments

I spent the last fortnight in Belize. It was my fourth trip to the country. Didn’t take so many photos this time, but I did a lot of drawings. I’ll do a couple more blog posts about my trip, including those drawings, but for now, here’s some photographs.

Crossing the border between Mexico (right) and Belize (left) on foot:

The jungle trail after a night of heavy-ish rain at the wonderful Hickatee Cottages in Punta Gorda:

A crocodile:

A downpour at Hickatee. It was wonderful:

Belize seems to be full of signs trying to get people not to litter. Most of the signs rhyme:

A chicken looking at mangrove:

Grackles:

Another grackle:

A kiskadee:

The road to Hopkins. There aren’t many buses from the main Southern Highway, so I’d been advised to hitch a ride down the four-mile road. Ten vehicles passed me by before, 45 minutes into my hot and very sweaty hike down the road, a very pleasant young man called Johnny gave me a ride:

The view from Tipple Tree Beya, the guest house where I stayed in Hopkins:

That’ll do:

A backpacker hostel in Hopkins. Only 50 cents a night:

Clouds being cloudy:

Rush hour, downtown Hopkins.

Virtually all of the buses that transport people around Belize are old Blue Bird school buses. This is the one I took from Belize City back over the border to Chetumal, Quintana Roo.
