It was time to leave Livingston and Guatemala for Belize. Belize is a short 1.5 hour trip by lancha. We entered Belize in Punta Gorda. A small, very laid back village, much like Livingston, but with many more American ex-pats. Big Jer is one such expat. Originally from Texas, came down for a visit with his wife and saw a bar for sale. As the story goes, he looked over at his wife and said: “Wouldn’t it be great to buy this thing and move on down here?”. His wife said: “Yeah, go ahead”. So they did. Then they sold their construction business in Texas and setup shop in Belize. And so go the ex-pat stories! We only spent three days in Belize. We found it expensive and the water wasn’t what we expected.
