Short Post on Belize, Since I just rode down to Hopkins and then headed for the border of Guatemala the next day. It rained heavy the night..... so everything was wet. But I packed up in the Morning and Sam and I had breakfast. I tried the "fry Jack" which was tasty. Was thinking I was done with " Topes" when I left Mexico.... But No. In Belize they call them Bumps. It was weird being in Belize and having people speak English instead of the last couple months of Spanish. But it was British so most people speak english. Shook hands with Sam, wishing him safe and interesting travels..... Then I was off! got to the border around noon, ready for my third border crossing. Each one is different and you need to figure out where to go to Check yourself out of the current country, then get the bike checked out..... then over the border into the new country and check yourself and your bike in. Being rested, calm, and focused is important. As it has been hot and humid so far. Walked into Belize Customs, they signed me out and I needed to pay 30 Belize ($15 USD) as a departure tax. Then the bike was stamped out. Then over to Guatemala. First I get sent to have my bike sprayed down. Had to pay 12 Quetzales Then to another building to check myself into the country. Fortunately this was all in one spot. Snapped thsi photo and my flash went off. They guy gave me a bad look, but I told him I was just taking a photo of the sign. Oh, this was the wash down for vehicles coming into Guatemala. The directed me to ride down the sideway to the Manual station or I would go through the wash Had to get copies of my driver license, title, registration, passport etc. So i walk to the copy shop and got them done, but when I got back I realized that I had copies in my folder for everything he needed ..... filled out the forms and then he told me his computer was down it would be 30-45 minutes.... So I waited by my bike. but in about 15 minutes he waved me back, and got my paperwork down. Paperwork done. I am on my way with my official sticker. over a secondary bridge since the main was was under serious construction. Just a short 65 KM to E Remake which is the town on the way to Tikal. There was reportedly bad section of road that got very muddy with a steep uphill climb. Turns out there was a couple two miles stretches of rough road, that would be muddy but it was dry. The steep hill was paved..... It was a quick ride down to my hotel. Got to my Hotel and relaxed. It was $32 USD but had air conditioning and really nice people running this. I was going to be up at 5Am to catch a bus up to Tikal to see the ruins so it was worth it! Had a great dinner of grilled fish (complete fish), Not sure what kind as it is a local fish, but it was tasty.
