The weather here right now in Belize is just perfect! Sunny mornings, hot days but not sweltering, and cool evenings. I am loving it! It really is a perfect time to come visit, but only if you’re coming on vacation.
Why do I say that? Because I always tell my relocation clients you really should visit Belize, if possible (timing and work commitments don’t always cooperate) during our hottest time of the year – August and September. This is especially true if you are concerned about how you will be able to handle the humidity here. If you come during one of those two months, you should get your answer.
Yesterday I had my normal Monday morning office work. Then I went out to run several errands. First, I needed to make a quick stop at the market. I was out of bananas, which you can buy ten for a dollar, as well as tomatoes, celery, cabbage, and garlic.
Every day, as part of my toxin cleanse, I have to eat at least two raw cloves of garlic. Have you ever done that before? I certainly hadn’t. I didn’t realize how hot raw garlic is! It practically burns your tongue. But it has huge medicinal and nutritional properties, so it’s worth it. I’ve actually gotten quite used to it now, but Nige isn’t enjoying it too much, if you know what I mean.
The only thing they were out of was lettuce. A fresh supply of that comes in today, so I’ll go stop by and get some. Next I needed some more deodorant. A word to the wise. Finding clear gel deodorant in Belize is quite challenging. They mostly sell the solid type, which I hate, because it always gets all over my clothes no matter how carefully I put my shirts on.
I have one place in Cayo that I can always find it, so I headed over to Era Plaza. It’s expensive though! A little 2.7 oz container of Secret costs $16.95 bze ($8.48 usd) – yikes! But I bought two anyway, because the cost is worth it to me (I hate deodorant stained clothes).
Next I needed some cornstarch. That is allowed on a gluten free diet, and I can use it in place of flour in some recipes as a thickener. I wasn’t able to find it at my normal grocery store last week when I went, so I tried a different store, and I was in luck. Only $2.95 bze ($1.48 usd) for a box of it.
After all the running around, it was time for my massage appointment. I just love my new therapist. I go see her every ten days, and she is slowly working out years of tension that has built up in the areas that most massage therapists don’t touch, like my sacrum, psoas, hip joints, and stomach, along with my neck and shoulders. She only charges $60 bze ($30 usd) for 100 minutes – you just can’t beat that!
So, are you a gel or a solid deodorant person?
