Caye Caulker

So this is the front of Caye Caulker Ocean Academy. I have a lot more pictures of the school I would like to include, but this will have to wait until I get home, because it just took approximately 5 minutes to upload this one photo!

I’ve started exploring this tiny island. The water is “decent.”

The first night I found a campsite for $7 US. True to form, the next day I found one for $5 US per night, so I went through all the trouble, packed up the tent, moved one block down the road, and set up again. This is what “saving” means. It’s things like this that can extend the amount of traveling you can afford.

The downside– my new cheaper campsite is the home of huge blue crabs that are underground during the day and come out at night to scare campers. They scuttled around my tent all night clicking their huge blue claws at me. I nervously clutched my headlamp sitting straight up in the middle of my tent for about 20 minutes around 2am, but those critters kept on clicking and I managed to get back to sleep. When I woke up at 6 they were nowhere to be found…
