Two cute friendly world travelling French girls ( Alexia and Helene ) in their late 20's, stay at Falconview Backpackers Adventure Hostel. They got in before noon, coming from Tikal going Eastward to Caye Caulker eventually. They managed to go canoeing with a guide on the lower Macal River Gorge on their low budget choices of things to do that same afternoon. Most tours had already left for all day expeditions. Their story was interesting. They had left Europe because of the cost of living and too many rules about living and other European turmoil. They have lived in a Northern Mexican city of 1 1/2 million people for two years now and applied for Permanent Residency in Mexico. They do not wish to go back to Europe, except for perhaps family visits. When questioned about boyfriends they said the men of their age in Mexico were a bunch of Mama's boys, still living at home with their mothers. The pickings were not too good. From our place they caught the early morning bus to the coast and the Caye Caulker Water Taxi Association, for the ride to Caye Caulker where they were planning to stay on the beach at my daughter TINA'S BACKPACKERS HOSTEL. They teach FRENCH in Guanajirato, Mexico.
