Every year a group of business people from Atlanta and other places gather at the Atlanta International Airport to make the short plane ride to the most dangerous airport in the world. Many have gone for 18 years or more. It began with Hurricane Mitch when the deadly hurricane devastated Honduras in 1996 or so. A couple of Atlanta businessmen took a group of people to Honduras to assist. They heard about a ranch that a woman, who had lost her husband, was trying to sell. He found a beautiful valley in the Northern part of Honduras called the Agalta Valley and bought a 1600 acre parcel of land for nearly nothing and made a plan to bring missionaries to the area to assist the Hondurans with reconstruction. What we find today is a working ranch with cattle, horses and pigs with a staff of 30 people that host church groups 50 weeks a year to do mission work with about 125 villages surrounding the ranch.
About 40 business people and 11 veterinarians (CVM or Christian Veterinary Missionaries) from all over the country met in Tegucigalpa, Honduras to get on two buses to make a 4 hour drive to The city of Jutecalpa, Honduras to spend the night at the Hotel Bocaron. We arrived at just after dark and after checking into ur rooms, we headed down to the pool and bar to wait for dinner. As usual, chicken, rice, etc., but we were famished. Most went to bed early for an early wake up.

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!!!
