Caye Caulker part two

Spent the last few days of the trip on beautiful Caye Caulker. I love that place. It’s the typical island paradise, not too touristy ….. But with awesome snorkeling and friendly locals. And a Lebanese restaurant!! The owner who is lebanese, has a creole accent which is pretty funny. So the only activity I took part in was a one day snorkeling/sailing trip with ragamuffin, who I went with before. They’re great. Our captain was nicknamed caveman. And of course there’s the free rum punch and salsa. I saw a beautiful coral “garden” where we saw some nurse sharks resting in a crevice. Then a feeding station with nurse sharks and stingrays. I got to pet a shark belly and a stingray. The. Then a marine reserve where all the fish are huge because they haven’t been fished to death. I saw an unbelievably huge parrot fish, barracuda and finally got to see some turtles!!! One swam right past me. And did I have my goprp camera!? No. Why? Because I was expecting more of the same as before which was nice but not what I ended up seeing. But some nice people who were on the tour said they would send me their photos. We’ll see. And I also hung out with marthe a nice Norwegian girl. I made some great connections on this trip. Now I have an open invitation to Amsterdam and Norway. Sweeet!! So here I am in the Vancouver airport. Sunburnt and with a smile on my face, looking forward to cracking open the coconut rum and listening to some bob marley. As the...

So I got to meet his family and hang out with them. What a nice man. We set up the tents etc then got a Tour with dr. Awe. It was very interesting. The temple at Caracol is the largest structure in Belize! Gotta like that. Then at the top of the temple some Mayan elders climbed to the top and lit some incense. I was surprised the most of the ppl there was drunk Americans. I was expecting some new age types of which I saw only one of. I made friends with some loud Americans from georgia which was weird. They are really so different from the types I normally hang with. As soon as they began discussing god I had to zip my mouth. I stayed up till midnight to celebrate the new day along with two if the.cooler Americans even though I suspect they were all Romney supporters. Blech. We drank a lot of rum. I had to have a little break at the foot of the temple in the pitch black. When I saw two glowing eyes. I am not superstitious. It the rum and the doomsday predictions and the fact I was in the jungle made me a bit nervous. When I went to check out the glowing eyes suddenly they looked at me then these huge wings unfolded and it flew right...
