here my A320 window seat, bumping along around 30,000 feet, trying to recover from several days of in Honduras.might as well pound out a few lines on my notebook and share the adventures.
Nope, nothing like my last trip to this Central American paradise when we staying at Pico Bonito, courtesy of the minimum bid auction we scored at Luxury Link.
This time it was a lot more basic, a little less expensive and a humbling authentic journey.
The stimulus was an annual gathering of several
amigos (one of whom now resides in Honduras)
with the goal of continuing a
long standing holiday (Easter) tradition.
Tasting tequilas, reviewing the accomplishments and failures of the past year, tasting tequilas, sampling some local cuisine, tasting tequilas, seeing some of the less visited tourist sites, and of course, tasting some tequilas!
By the end of the week, we had excelled at tasting tequilas and only marginally accomplished our other objectives.
For my own part, I will be drinking a great deal of water during the next ten days or so and nibbling on a steady diet of Advils in hopes of offsetting the tasting of tequilas!
We did construct a shrine in honor of our attempts at decorating eggs:
We were following too closely behind these trucks (no child seats or safety restraints required for externally conveyed passengers traveling at
high speeds on marginal roads):
Good brakes can avoid those sudden and unexpected encounters with highway crossing bovines:
The hills and valleys are so beautifully covered in green foliage (why not it seems to rain every day and with humidity close to 100%....probably perfect growing conditions.certainly perfect excessive perspiration conditions):
At the end of day, just paddle out and wait for the sunset:
and of course, consider tasting some tequila!
Next time, I'm going back to Pico Bonito and taste some of their luxury as well!
