Something to consider when moving to an island like Ambergris Caye is the limited shopping. For me eBay has been one of the ways way to fill that gap. Many people ship internationally you just have to know what you are willing to pay for shipping and plan in advance so you have enough time to get you item by the time you need it.
Today I was getting ready for the annual pimpNho Halloween party at Pedro’s with some wig shopping on eBay. I got lucky and found one for Paul in the states so I know it will be here sooner than later. Mine however is cutting it close as it is coming from China. I wrote them and asked if they could send it asap as I wanted it before Halloween – they wrote back quickly and said 15 – 20 days. Everyone please cross your fingers that it arrives early.
I once bought a crank flashlight from Hong Kong – after I paid for it the company wrote me and said that they were sending the flashlight to Honduras. I had to laugh at that and wonder how old their atlas is because the official name was changed from British Honduras to Belize in June 1973 and full independence was granted on September 21, 1981. Of course I wrote them back promptly and said if they do that I will never see my flashlight and that the address I had given them was indeed the correct one.
