We awoke early and again congregated around the pool with the fabulous Honduran coffee. Around 7:00, breakfast was served — very dry scrambled eggs, delicious pancakes and watermelon and some orange drink that doesn’t pass for orange juice. We loaded the two buses and made the very precarious trip through town to the city center. A couple of years ago, we were horrified to see that the fabulous tree in the center of town was cut down, but to our pleasant surprise, much has been done to this city center to turn it into a beautiful park. Everyone was very pleased. We wandered around, while some went into the cathedral, then we loaded up again to travel to the Super Mercado (grocery store). Many bought coffee, but they had no coffee beans. Everyone bought snacks and we ate them on the bus on the way to the ranch, which was only a couple of hours away. We marveled at the fact that the entire drive was all paved with the strange exception of about 100 feet. We arrived just before lunch, unpacked and took the medications that we brought with us to a gathering area. I believe we brought more this year than last. The bell rung us in for lunch, where we had a barbecue chicken, rice and salad. Then many took naps before our 3:00 meeting. At the meeting we learned about our projects for the week. There will be a group working with the children on crafts, a group mixing concrete for a basketball court at the middle school, a group working with the students on sewing projects, a group bringing in supplies for the computer room that Rotary put in 6 years ago. I actually received a list of supplies requested by the computer teacher and was able to purchase nearly everything they wanted. We are now sitting on the porch discussing projects in years past and which ones were good and which ones were useless.

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!!!
