Day Thirty-Five and -Six, 11 - 12 November, 2015Most of the past two days have been spent over in Chetumal, either at a store called Boxito (http://www.boxito.com.mx/2/sucursales.php), on Heros Avenue; or at Home Depot, on Insurgentes Blvd. Home Depot is a major change for us. Even though it's in Mexico, it's exactly like Home Depot up North - too much of everything. I'm not sure that that's necessarily a good thing. It isn't stopping me from shopping there. I just don't want to go too often and become enamored of shopping with such ostentatious plenty. I prefer the quaint, small-town shopping feel of Belize.
Anyway, I've been looking at toilets. I'm of the school that plain white is better, like the one below. Don't be fooled by the $199 price tag - that's in Pesos (Mexico uses the same symbol) and it's the monthly payment if you buy it on credit.

Of course, crossing the border, involved passing through Belize Customs, and paying duty, GST, and probably an environmental tax. Altogether that cost us a little over
