A Shopping Trip to Orange Walk

Yesterday, we took some time to head over to Orange Walk to do a little shopping. Before we could actually take to the road, we had to stop at the Texaco station and buy a case of motor oil. The Isuzu was really low on oil. Turns out the steering center link was rubbing against the oil filter and had worn a small hole in it. Not good.

So, we loaded a few quarts into the vehicle and headed out. Our first stop was Mike's Auto Parts, where we got a filter and a wrench.

From there, we went to San Sing's scooter shop to get a couple of inline fuel filters for Bob's scooter. While there, we scavenged a hunk of cardboard and borrowed a screwdriver to get the oil filter off the Isuzu. Bob did yeoman's work in replacing the filter.

After that, we went to the market place for a late breakfast of some local foods (forgot the names), and glasses of watermelon juice.

After eating, we strolled around the market place. Nicer and cleaner than Corozal's, I think mainly because they don't allow vehicles to get into the immediate area. Just more pedestrian friendly.

After that, we did some grocery shopping at People's Market, then we went on to New River Enterprises, Ltd ( to look for furniture. Well, more to see what was available.
