Tom and I would sure like an answer to this question. Seriously.
After a fun day in Belize City enjoying the final Harry Potter film at the Princess Hotel & Casino, eating dinner at Tropicolada (which by the way has the BEST shrimp quesadillas in Belize) and stopping off at a supermarket to pick up some things we can't get in Belmopan, we started the hour long drive back home. And just as we got to the cemetery on the road out of the city we hit our first crab. Literally.
After that Tom was dodging them as they scampered across the highway. At one point though they were so numerous we just rolled up the windows so we couldn't hear the crunch. EEEW! We laughed and joked about the whole experience. But, honestly, I was freaked out by the sheer numbers of them. We saw at least 50 of them during the first 15 minutes of our drive home.
It was one of the most surreal experiences we have had since arriving here. And not one I hope to repeat anytime soon!
Have you ever heard of such a thing?
