Harry and Charley’s excellent adventure to cross the border to BelizeMarch 14, 2020
Bureaucracy defends the status quo long past the time when the quo has lost its status.
We crossed into Belize In Chetumal MX this is southeast on the Caribbean side. The border-crossing is only about 5 miles from the city. There are two exits, one for the “Chetumal free Zone” where all the Belizeans and Mexican people do their duty-free shopping. No one knows the rules who can shop here and what you can take across. The online website says: “businesses located there and can import goods duty-free…for resale”. “Retail sales are NOT allowed to Belizeans or local gringos.” It is meant to be for Mexican shoppers. But there are more Belizeans and tourists then Mexicans there. And on the Belizean border, it was pretty relaxed, and no duty charged that day.
This is the wrong exit if you want to cross the border. Turn around!
Harry is not impressed!
The love of one’s country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?
