Sounds like you had a great trip. Banana Beach is cool isn't it? As for the people on Ac your post reminds me a bit of something that happened on my first trip. I took a golf cart into town and at a cross road wasn't exactly sure which road to take (subsequently found out it didn't matter); ), I asked a girl on a house porch...next thing I knew she was getting in the golf cart with me cuz she had to go to town anyway. Freaked me out at first, but I soon discovered this was the AC way. Many times I've been caught in the rain walking back from town and people have always stopped in their carts to ask if they can give me a ride. Something you just don't see here at home much.

You got it Axe...You know, now that I'm more awake another thing I noticed about the Belizean people, at least on AC is that they take care of people with no hidden agendas. I love the people there. It's sort of like being in a fairy tale book but it's real life. Do you know what I mean jelly bean? And the staff at Banana Beach are always looking out for you especially as a single woman traveler. It's amazing....

Thanks Sean, I am having a house built up north and will need to start making frequent trips from town when I am there. A gas power cart is just what I am going to need. Will contact Cholo's for rates.
