|Belize it or not...Bear & Em in Belize!||
We happened to arrive at Super Buy this morning right when they were unloading two truckloads of new stock. One of the large delivery trucks had just driven off when Barry snapped these shots. It's pretty crazy shopping here now as high season cranks up, as there are almost always numerous bicycles, golf carts, Polarises (ultra-loud souped-up 4WD golf cart-like vehicles), and sometimes trucks to dodge to find a parking place. But the prices are good, so we keep coming back.
One of many interesting things about shopping on Ambergris Caye is that very few stores have designated parking. Many shops have a bike rack, but there are no "parking lots" like back in the US. So people park on the street and pull in right in front of the stores, wherever they can find a place. It's quite chaotic at times with vehicles coming and going. The thing that really irks me is when a golf cart parks right in front of the bike rack, blocking entry and exit. If your bike is parked in the middle of a couple of others and a cart pulls in right behind you, you're stuck. I expect we'll be seeing more and more of this sort of thing as high season cranks into full gear next week and the week between Christmas and New Years. Hopefully after that, things will calm down a bit.
