This morning, Tom and I and our friends Doug, Gretchen and Patrick hopped onto a boat that headed through the Belize jungle to start our journey to Lamanai--- Mayan ruins on the mainland in Belize. Our journey took us by boat to a small and very rustic island called Baboo where we hopped an old school bus--which was blue (not before getting some pics with the belizian street dogs) and headed to another boat that took us to the ruins.
It was a long day, but so worth it. Each leg of the journey was beautiful. The guides we had were amazing. I learned a lot about the Maya people as well as the animals and plants that make up Belize. (Did you know that the closest language to Mayan is Japanese?)

After the ruins and a trek into the jungle to find the howler monkeys that were making so much noise, we headed back to boat, bus and boat to call it an early night.

I am having issues with loading pics. I will keep trying.
