Yeah, yeah. The end of my Belizean Adventures is LONG overdue but lucky for you I saved the best and tastiest part for last. In Part 1 we talked about real food airport style and the first week in Belize. Part 2 consisted of Guatemalan adventures and some really amazeballs curried pescada fresca.
At this point in the adventure I am all rested up from enjoying my coffee with view and hammock time so clearly I needed to relocate again. We headed back to San Ignacio so we could stop at the farmers market one more time then continued on alllllll the way back to the eastern coast. We landed in the chill little beach town of Hopkins, Belize where we watched the sunset at the Kismet Inn.
The Kismet is run by Tricia, an ex-New Yorker who just couldn’t get enough of Belize. She is hilarious, crazy, and a phenomenal cook. She loved my sandals so much she tried them on and wanted to buy them off of me but they were too small for her (I have little elf-sized feet). Instead, she let us stay for free our first night if I promised to buy her a pair when I got home and ship them to her. I love the trust you have to have in others when you backpack. I have yet to be disappointed by these strangers and have been helped so many times by others in my travels that I made sure to fulfill my promise when I got home. (more…)
