Belmopan Artisan Show

We heard there was going to be an Artisan Show in Belmopan on Thursday, so decided we needed some culture in our lives. We were up early Thursday morning and on the bus. We rolled out of Placencia at 6:25 and we were in Belmopan just before 10. We were lucky and got the air conditioned express bus.

Breakfast at the Caladium and we were on our way. We found our way to the US Embassy with no problems, it was a nice walk and we got to see all the smaller embassies on the way.

It was not exactly what we expected, it was quite small, but the art displayed was very nice. We bought a hummingbird feeder.

By the time we got there, I was looking for a washroom. There was no problem using the washroom at the embassy as long as you were willing to leave everything you carried with security, went through a metal detector just like at the airport, and promised you were not carrying a bomb. I only had to pee for heaven's sake.

Stars and Stripes behind bars.

Here is one last picture saying not to take pictures.


  1. one of our friends had a booth there. I have not heard how it went for him. I would have loved to have been there!
