|Pedestrian Xing Bump|
|Sugar Cane Litter|
|Striped Power Poles|
There are several villages enroute to Belize City, typically there's a welcome sign with the village name, a few houses and businesses along the roadside, a couple sets of speedbumps then a "have a nice trip" (buen viaje, thanks for visiting, see you soon) sign at the end of the village. We have also noticed the power lines are painted -- red or blue and white stripes, plain red or plain blue -- along the village roadsides. This paint starts and stops at the beginning and end of the villages. It's a good reminder to slow down..speedbumps ahead!!
This all said, it is a 2 hour drive from Corozal to Belize City. You'll see many sugar cane fields- each in it's own phase of harvesting; farms in general-horses, sheep, cows and people just walking down the road--sometimes it's not clear where they have come from, they just appear on the side of the lonely road--walking. There is one toll bridge near the Lamanai ruins turn off--it's 75cents each way. And a couple of checkpoints on the way--just have all your passport and car papers with you!
