We slept well and woke to roosters crowing. We went into the outdoor dining area next to the pool and had a typical Honduran breakfast.  We got back on the bus and went to the city center of Juticalpa.  It had been tradition to walk to the center of town, but HOI (our host) had some complaints from the locals about teams taking pictures of everything and everyone they saw, so we rode on the bus.  Actually, many of us liked this since we had to walk through a meat market that wasn’t too appetizing.  We arrived at the city central and noticed that more work had been done to the area.  Many went into the Catholic Church to observe part of the service, but many stayed outside to watch our group photographer, Byron, launch his drone for the first time.  All of the locals enjoyed watching this as we did, but it had to come to a halt when a bird thought it was invading its territory.  The bird obviously wanted to fight the drone, so Byron brought the drone down to land.  We rode in the bus for another couple of hours and arrived at our destination, the Rancho Paraiso.  We cleaned up a little, then headed to lunch.  For the rest of the afternoon, we built the stands for the water filtration units.  There was much discussion on how this should be accomplished, but we decided to just build the legs, so they would be easy to transport, then finalize them in the villages.  We also drilled the required holes in the 5-gallon plastic buckets that would actually filter and hold the water.

About lynntclarke

I am an attorney by trade, but love to travel. I am in my "golden" years and decided to blog about some of my trips, mainly to keep a diary of my experiences, so that I can do picture books for my travels and remember what I did each day. When you travel, you tend to forget the day before as you are having such wonderful new experiences. The blog will be there forever, I suppose, but memories fade fast. I hope you learn something worthwhile as you read. If not, then that is okay, too. Enjoy your own travels!!!
