We didn't have to wait to long for our out dated chicken bus to arrive. The busses are old outdated school busses.

Last night we finished the evening playing pool with our hostel friends. Alex is getting quite good and was providing competition for the locals. After a good sleep, we had our breakfast and raced to the water taxi for a ride to the mainland. There we caught a taxi to the bus terminal where we waited for the bus to Independence. We met an American in the terminal who had recently sold everything he owned and is traveling Central America. Once the bus arrived we crammed ourselves on the express chicken bus for our 3 hour journey to Independence. Another water taxi ride and we arrived in Placencia. Interestingly, we were the only tourists on this leg of the trip. I learned later that this is the slow season. It seems hotter here than in Caye Caulker and we had to pack it quite a ways before we found a room. Once settled, we were able to go out and get a beer and quesadilla. A little exploring and we called it an early night.
