Excitement mounts as we pack for our trip to Honduras -- each traveler allowed to take only 1 roll-abord and one other small item. But we have a good parking list, so everything should fit. Thirteen of us will leave by bus from Saint Rose on the morning of Monday, May 16 to travel via JFK to Miami and then on to Honduras, eventually finding ourselves in La Ceiba on the north coast of Honduras.
La Ceiba is named after the tree in the picture to the right which were plentiful in the area, though many fewer remian now.
Honduras is a country of contrasts with breathtaking scenery, side by side with abject poverty. During our two-week stay we hope to work both in the city at schools and a day-care center as well as in a rural area near Jutiapa.
As we travel and learn more about the country, we will share our stories.
