San Ignacio is across the Macal River from their sister city of Santa Elena. To get from one side of the river to the other you must cross the one-lane Hawksworth Bridge - Belize's only suspension bridge which was built in 1949. Walking across is pretty easy, but in order to cross in a car, you have to take your turn. In order to avoid confrontations in the middle of the bridge, traffic is controlled by Belize's first traffic light and one of the few that are anywhere in the country.
Fondest memory: It's difficult to take pictures of the bridge from inside the car, and so one time when we were crossing to San Ignacio, I got out of the car, and walked across while Bob drove.
Favorite thing: This is the only suspension bridge in Belize, along with one of the five traffic lights in the whole country. By the way, that light never changes color. =)
