I would like to know which retail items are the most outrageously priced on AC. The post about the 33 cent acrylic paints being sold for $18 (BZ?)has made me curious. Please...rant away!

One specialised item that cropped up yesterday. I gave someone (a Belizean) an 8gb USB flash drive which cost me US$25, and he said he tried to buy a flash drive in SP recently and the cheapest he was quoted was Bz$75 for a 1gb one.

I'm afraid I'd choke on it after paying that price.

My rant is crystal light - the packets you put in water bottles. I pay $1 US at the dollar store for the same item here is $17 BZ (or $8.5 US) if you can even find it. Out of control! I would understand if it weighed a ton, but it's powder people!

No papa, nobody said that. I guess if one wants to eat the same foods, and live a similar lifestyle as back home, one has to bring a fistful of cash. But half the allure of Belize is the simplicity; I wouldn't want to live the same lifestyle as here. Good thing I like beans and tortillas, eh?
