This might be a good place to share Stupid Tourist stories.
I'm having a few pile up and need to vent.
It seems more than a few have left their brains at home but my emails from people planning their trips are indicating perhaps this isn't the case at all.

Marty doesn't have enough bandwidth to put all of the stupid things I have been asked over the years.

On CC a girl asked us
"Does the sun always come up on that side of the island?"

I always ask 'Where are you staying?' to avoid spending a lot of time and email exchange with some on who might be on a cruse ship or staying in Placencia.
Yesterday I exchange emails with a lady that wanted to do the Blue Hole,Turneffe, Hol Chan Shark Ray, Lamani and visit Bacalar Chico reserve and what ever other trips I could suggest. She wanted to purchase a package, we exchanged 4 emails and then i discovered shes arriving on the 11th departing on the 13th.

Actually Barn, it's cause the fish PEE in it!
:-)


Here are a few

1. A lady who was already staying on Ambergris Caye asked me if she could drive a car from here to Belize City.

2. The question - "When is it Easter here?"

3. A financial planner who gave a seminar on investing on Belize. She was from NYC and flew here via Miami. During her entire presentation she referred to " investing in South America" and being "south of the Equator".

4. Oh your name is Josh? How did you come to have an AMERICAN name? (said tourist seems not to be familiar with the Bible and Joshua?)

One of my all time favorites was a couple coming down a few years ago. We exchanged several emails about the options she had to get to San Pedro from the mainland. After about five emails, she finally told me that they had decided to take the bus.

Good luck sista.....

"How did you get here?"

"On a plane, just like you did."

"Do you like it?"

"No, I'm collecting money to buy a plane ticket out... do you have any extra cash?"
