The Not-So-Wide Street: The Narrowest in the World

From our friend Lisa Town comes these pictures from her recent trip to Placencia, Belize where, according to the guide books, you can find the world's narrowest street. Lisa describes it as, "basically a 4' wide sidewalk that goes through hotels, gift shops, artist studios, bars and restaurants which runs parallel to the beach for about a mile.  Apparently it was constructed about 30 years ago because fisherman got tired of rolling their wheelbarrows on the sand and was originally 2' but reconstructed as 4' in 2001 after the original walk was destroyed by a hurricane."

It looks like a complete street to us.
