    The new world has begun. The old has gone.

    I wake up and see this.

    Today I leave Mexico. I go to Chetumal crossing.

    This man asks me for the exit fee.

    I decline. At the end, I cross the border without paying. What he wanted to see was the receipt for the visa fee. More to this "exit fee".

    Now I am in Belize. It is a beautiful country with equally beautiful people.

    Belizians love their manicured lawn.

    I go to San Ignacio.

    I see this in front of the police station. 25.000 USD, a policeman says.

    I enjoy this place so much, I decide to spend the rest of year here.

    Their rice is delicious, pepper hot, weather warm, and women friendly.
    Why not stay?

    Now I am back in Mexico. Some reason, after spending few days in Belize, I feel I have done enough riding this time. For the first time this trip, I have destination....home.

    I will take it slow and easy going north.

    So here is the scoop of the "exit fee".

    When you enter Mexico, you will pay visa fee. Keep the receipt for this fee and present it when you exit, then pay nothing. If you don't have this receipt, they will ask you to pay the visa fee, hence the so called exit fee.

    You enter Mexico and do not pay this fee, you will have to pay when exit. Hope this clears some of confusion.

    One more about TVIP. It is good for 6 months, so you can enter/leave multiple times within the time frame.

    Happy new year everyone!
