We're going to Belize. Tomorrow. Or Sunday, I don't know. Haven't actually booked the tickets yet.
I'm sure you're asking why. Us too. Well, actually we know. We just don't understand.
So our visa expired last month. We went to immigration and got a 30 day extension instead of the 90 day extension we were able to get before. They told us we could come back and get another 30 days. So we went to do that yesterday. Nope. Denied. Apparently, you can't actually get an extension more than once.
Now we have to leave the country for 72 hours. By Sunday. And because of the four country pact that is great and annoying at the same time, we can't just run to Guatemala or El Salvador. We have to go further. But of course, because of said pact, we can't go through Guatemala or Nicaragua to get to another country while on an extension. We have to fly, which is quicker, but you know, not as convenient as hopping on a bus or a boat.
We're all for a mini-vacation, but you know, with advance notice. O well.
Yay new passport stamp!
