On our first two days, walking into town we battled mosquitos, as the breeze was nearly non-existent. Today, however, the breeze finally picked up, and it was absolutely gorgeous. No mosquitos bothered us at all, but the sun was shining warmly, and we were sweating profusely as we walked from place to place. We had bank business in addition to visiting a multitude of shops. In Belize most stores are small, so you end up going multiple places to do your marketing. It's actually a lot of fun, but we are looking forward to having our bikes with baskets, which will enable us to travel faster and carry more.
Today we made it all the way to the south side of San Pedro for some good deals at the less expensive grocery stores there (Marina's and Super Buy South, which we noticed had lower prices on some items than the in-town Super Buy), and visited our two favorite places to buy fruits and veggies: Maria's fruit stand, and Zac's Healthy Belize (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Healthy-Belize/145912062138566). At Maria's, we were helped by Jose and his son (also Jose). The fruit there is fresh and inexpensive, and they threw in a free cup of freshly squeezed OJ. As hot and sweaty as we were, that OJ might as well have been manna from heaven. Yum! Here is what we bought at Maria's for $15 BZE ($7.50 US), after eating two of the four bananas:
