chetumal part 1

sugar cane trucks in southern Belize

This past weekend we took a short vacation across the border in Chetumal, Mexico.  This is why we go there: air conditioning, cable tv, hot running water, Italian restaurant, movie theater, malls.  Basically, it is like being in the states only much cheaper to get to.  I had way too much fun dragging Daniel around shopping, but he got to watch 3 world cup games in air conditioned comfort so it all evened out.

We took taxis everywhere in Chet- they are really cheap, but scarier then Belizean taxis, I think because there is more traffic.  This is Daniel's hair standing up on end in terror after we almost ran into another car:

The mall in Chet has a huge movie theater, so we went and saw the latest Twilight movie.  I know.  However, it was made 100% more entertaining by the audience's reactions.  They laughed at everything.  Touching moment when Jacob gives Bella handmade gift:  audience laughs.  Edward tells Bella he won't have sex with her till they are married: audience laughs.  Although some also booed at that part.  Apparently we need some chastity education here.  The subtitles seemed to be pretty close to the dialog, so who knows. 

Daniel debating what purse to buy...

He almost went for that pink fringy one but I talked him out of it.


  1. no, believe it or not they were really really expensive.
