Greetings from beautiful Honduras! Our trip here went well, though not perfectly in true Central American style. Flights were long but uneventful (PHOTO 1, above) and we piled into our shuttle van after a few initial misunderstandings. The driver also didn't understand we preferred safety to speed (PHOTO 2) but, miraculously, we arrived safe and sound having successfully dodged iguanas, horses, cows, skinny dogs, scrawny cats, and multiple rock slides, some with boulders the size of a small car. Immigration was a practice in patience (PHOTO 3) but we arrived at our school early and were escorted to our families.
Monday we worked with our teachers for the 1st time (PHOTO 4) and explored the town a bit. PHOTO 5 was taken in the school garden during a downpour that turned the streets into rivers. The torrential rains also caused a rockslide in the mountains above Copan, taking out the main water supply pipline and leaving the entire town without water. They'll fix in eventually, probably 'tomorrow' (wink).
