Tuesday in Belize

Well it's Tuesday morning in the wonderful nation on Belize. We are anchored anoint three miles off the coast and there are small boats called tenders picking up passengers.
Now I said we were three miles off shore, I'll tell you if that's as close as I have to get to Belize I will be happy. I have nothing against the people in Belize it's just the city reminds me of a cross between Beirut and the ghetto.

Whats the lie most often told in Mexico? Answer: of course we filter our water. Walking around the ship this morning it seems some people fell for that lie! None of us were that stupid though.

What's the lie second most often told in Mexico? Answer: I will be right back with your change. Didn't get us with that one either. There will be more to come on this subject.

That's it for now, have a great day

  1. I feel the same way about San Juan. I won't be getting off the ship when we're in port there either. Everyone always asks me where my cruise is going... I always say it doesn't matter where... as long as I'm on the ship!

    Keep having fun, fun, fun!

  2. When I was in the Navy, we called them "liberty boats" (because getting to go ashore was called "liberty"). Tenders in the Navy are fairly large ships that provide supplies and perform repairs at sea, such as destroyer tenders and submarine tenders.

    There, now you're smarter than you were a minute ago.


  3. Hmmm, I haven't missed much by not visiting Belize yet, huh? You are spot on about those Mexican myths. I don't need to go back there...evah!

  4. I've never been to Belize - I actually prefer the eastern Caribbean ports, although Cozumel and Grand Cayman are OK.

    Enjoy the rest of your cruise and I will continue to cruise vicariously through your blogs (and the Empress Bee's).


  5. If we're in Mexico we stay on the ship. Have fun!
