The first round-about. They have many in Belize... they work very well. I know it confuse the heck out of people it they put one in Forest Lake like they were talking a few years ago, but traffic would be better... I love this sculpture.
This is the light house that is also on the Light House Beer... (Belikin Lite)
Its a nice view form the tables where you eat
The Coke distributor in Belize. Coke products, Beer and water.
this is Food and Beverage. It is like a mini Sam's Club. It has a small shopping area, and I believe the rest is a ware house. There are a lot of Chinese people and restaurants in the country so we were able to find many sauces, spices and other fun things here for cooking. This is BTB office. I have not been there but its a good thing to know that the BTB is a branch of the government here. They help protect and promote the tourism industry here in the country. If you would like info about the country see their web page. If you ever have a bad experience in Belize, this is who you would report concerns to.
WE stopped here once, but we see her donuts for sale in the big grocery stores. I am not a raised donut persons, I still love my Cinnamon-Sugar old fashion from the Swedish Bakery 3 doors down from my old office on main street in Lindstrom.
OK... this is the subway that closed I think around Christmas this past year. I am SO glad it did. I was told that this was the only place in Belize that was aloud to import all the meats, breads and etc as it is a franchise. Well, we had eaten there about 4 times in total... the first time was great... Ah, Subway like home. Then every time after that they would be out of stuff... and the meats just didn't taste "right" so we stopped going. Then all of a sudden it was closed. In the US we eat a lot of sandwiches... that is not case here. Lunches here are "chicken, rice and beans". We often find that sandwiches are just bread with one little slice of meat and a piece of cheese. Nothing fancy.
Did you know that Marion Jones mother is form Belize? When she was in the Olympics and won medals this place was created and named for her in her honor. People we so proud to have a Belizean-American do so well.
This place was my "saving grace". Its like a mini Target. And in fact my bath towels are Target brand. They have a wonderful kitchen section, housewares, bedding, curtains, toys, electronics... everything! We have learned to live with far less shopping... but its still nice to just go and look ... men don't always understand that, but you ladies know what I am talking about.
So that is our view and favorite places of Belize City.
