Belize City, Belize
Hello, this is Dylan. Carly has asked me to guest post for our visit to Belize, so here goes...This is Belikin, the official beer of Belize, which was one of the stops on our cruise.
On this day we decided to split into separate groups. Carly's dad and sisters wanted to go kayaking down a river, but since Ky could not do that because of his age, we (Carly, Ky, Carly's mom and myself) went to go see the ruins at Altun Ha instead. The last time we had gone to Belize we saw the ruins at Xunantunich.These kids wouldn't move so I just got my picture taken with them instead. It doesn't look as epic=(
Altun Ha is the site of a Mayan City that was occupied from 900 BC to 1000 AD. Ky had fun enjoying the rain forest. See the face in the stones? Apparently it was a Jester God. Ky developed a taste for Belizean grass. We now have it shipped to our home for him to munch on. A good shot of the 'Sun God's Tomb'. Standing on said tomb.Enjoying the view.Apparently this particular site was a little more civil than at Xunantunich. They did not have a ball court where they played death games here. Oh well... I hope you enjoyed the post!
