Some of the cars I see in San Pedro remind me of Hot Wheels racers as you will see in my pictures below. For me it is a reminder that life in Belize is not the same as it was back in Canada. Seeing Hot Wheels cars around town always puts me in a good mood, similar to how I think living in a tropical climate and being a 10 minute walk from the Caribbean Sea is better than Prozac.
I was planning to do this post when I got home last night but tv and a program on Nat Geo about Egypt and King Tut secrets caught our attention and I never made it back to my laptop.
Here are my TGIF moments from yesterday:
– Surprise of our house guest Dennis returning from the mainland early because he had to get his passport stamped at Immigration.
– Getting a nice scalp massage at CG Esthetic when I went to get my hair done.
– Going for an iced coffee with Dennis after the salon at Catamaran beach bar followed by happy hour, big @ss bistro burgers and a basket of fries at El Divino. Also spilled over into a happy Saturday moment as I get the other half my burger for breakfast after Dennis makes our fortified fruit smoothies.
– Paul not knowing Dennis was back and we had gone for dinner bringing me home an order of Hugo’s Paella from Pedro’s Pizza. Again spilling over into a happy Saturday moment as Dennis and I can have Paella for lunch before we and I hit the beach. [If you missed Paella night be sure and go to Aji Tapa Bar and Restaurant to try Hugo’s cooking, it is worth the trek to North Ambergris Caye]
While writing this post I decided to Google Hot Wheels and see what kind of cool stuff I came up with. I thought the tag line on their facebook page was inspiring and definitely worth posting – Push the Limits. Break Records. Go Full Throttle. This is Hot Wheels. Go For It!
I also found a couple of cool videos the first one is a infomercial for Hot Wheels Wall Tracks called The Diversion.
Next comes Team Hot Wheels 2012 Recap from the official Hot Wheels You Tube channel, amazing what their drivers can do.
