Excursion in Belize
• Belize Tour
Belize - the only country in Central America, where the Russians is quite difficult to get a visa. The thing is that until recently, it was a British colony. Belize's independence was only 30 years ago. Now a visa issued by the UK embassy, as its in Belize there. Belize from the British got the English language, the image of the Queen on the money and negros, thanks to which the unprepared traveler can confuse Belize with the edge of London.
of Belize's population is only 700 thousand people, on average, 10 times less than in neighboring countries of Central Asia, that says a lot. Belize living expense of tourists. Of course, I do not really understand, why go to Belize - the usual beaches, no service, no attractions. Recently, by the way, in Belize we found oil, so it is likely that the situation will change.
So, we leave from Flores, where the main monument sits in a cage, like a parrot.
On the border welcome Prince Harry.
Most of the houses in Belize are as follows. They are on stilts, the first floor is used for parking or storage.
We arrived in the largest city of Belize City, Belize. The population of Belize (which city) - a total of 70 thousand people. Entrance to the city through the huge cemetery, which is symbolic.
All the house - old single-storey colonial buildings.
In contrast to all the other countries of Central America, on the streets of almost all black.
Belize 100 years ago looked like this:
Little has changed since then ...
Only the paint was peeling from the houses.
It has been rain ...
Police station then yellow-green. After the rain it flooded.
The people in Belize are scared not like to be photographed. At the sight of the camera they turn away, run away or close the face with his hands. Here I shot courthouse - the only decent building in the country. A passing cyclist covered his face with a child, so it does not hit the shot. The child nearly fell off his bicycle.
On Thursdays, no cakes
All ride bicycles.
Central Square of the city given the homeless.
All the trade in control of the Chinese. They built their supermarkets and cafes. Although the Chinese living on the street, I have not met. Perhaps they move through secret tunnels.
Most small shops or cafes - it's just a window with bars. In the room no one is allowed.
In the second column of each hanging plate, shall not be set dump. Waste disposal in Belize - at every second column.
Severe Belize school.
All the young negros go with his pants down. I have never understood this fashion.
Belizeans - a very religious people. At every house, on every corner there is necessarily some cross or religious appeals. Almost 3% of the population are to Jehovah's Witnesses.
This is how they live. Belize would be very organically looked somewhere on the west coast of Central Africa. There would be no one noticed.
