As history lovers, Jeremiah and I both have been giddy for months to visit Xunantunich ('zhoo-nan-too-nick') ruins in Belize. We used several kinds of travel to get to and through Belize in one day: Cruise ship, tender boat, charter bus, ferry, van, and by feet. The trip required a cross-country bus tour from Belize City to Xunantunich, which is just a few minutes from Guatamala. The view from the top of the ruins was beautiful, and it was interesting to ponder what happened to such an advanced civilization. To top off our visit, we had lunch with our tour group at a Belizean restaurant: chicken, plantains, coleslaw, and spicy coconut rice and beans.
