Lessons Learned

This is the wake of our southwardly bound water taxi. Only we intended to head north. $25 and three hours out of our lives is the price we pay for not asking a simple question.

Lesson Learned: If the boat (or bus) is on time in Central America, it is probably not the ride you’re waiting for.

    Oh, well. It looked like a lovely day for a boat ride.

    Ha ha, seems like a lovely trip anyway 🙂

    Loved the shot; and you are right there is never a need to be in a hurry in the rest of the world; that’s strictly an American tradition. LOL

    All part of the fun of travelling – right?! I was actually surprised at how punctual public transport was in South America (Ecuador and Peru) whilst I was over there last year, so I’ll bear this in mind when I eventually get to Central America…

    getting lost or in your case getting off course can lead to an interesting place sometimes. Serendipity, a happy accident can result in great stories and or pictures!

      Yeah, that is sometimes true. In this case, it just brought us back to Belize City. 😦

    Oh too funny, though I am sure it was not so much fun at that time — that is a long ride (we live on Ambergris Caye). We’ve actually found that the ferries and water taxis are fairly often on time here, much to our surprise. And one of the “chicken buses” we were trying to catch on the mainland left the stop 15 minutes early — our taxi driver taking us to the stop had to run him down so we could get on the bus! Transportation in Belize is nothing if not interesting. Just discovered your blog today and love it!
