La Esperanza, Intibuca, Honduras Once again, as you might expect, I find myself in a small town in Central America agonizing over such simple decisions like whether or not to add watermelon to my freshly squeezed orange and carrot juice or which topping I´d like on my 3rd choco-banana of the day. My inability to make decisions while frustrating it may be has facilitated many unforgettable experiences over the years, and, god first, will continue to do so. During the early morning hours last night my hotel was robbed. The perps broke a...

Jul 14, 2010 - Sweet La Esperanza

I always enjoy spending a few nights in La Esperanza, Intibucá. It´s only a two hour ride from my former Peace Corps site, Concepción, Intibucá and a 4hour ride from either Tegucigalpa or San Pedro Sula, the most prominent cities. La Esperanza has served for many years as a staging grounds for my Central American jaunts. It´s a wonderful place to get back into the swing of things so to speak. You know, the urinating in public, spitting and littering. It doesn´t take me long to feel right at home. Today I´ve been walking around taking...

Which Way Home???

Sep 10, 2007 - Settled In

I made it in to La Esperanza, a couple of days ago, and got settled into the home of Mercedes Reyes. She is a very nice woman and is very friendly. She has two daughters who are older than me, and her brother and nephew live there as well. Im sharing a room with Ynnon Tal who is from Israel but went to high school near Philly. He just graduated from high school, and is a very nice and funny guy. We get along well, which is a good thing becuase we are both her for the same amount of time, and it woud suck to have to live with someone who you...

Sep 23, 2005 - Building Homes in La Esperanza

Well i'm now at the end of my 2nd week of the building project & i'm loving every minute of it. It is extremely hard work as all we have is the very basic of tools so everything is done throught manual labour (there is no luxury of JCB's or cement mixers or even wheelbarrows here). I've been quite lucky in that i have joined the project at the very beginning stage so it will be good to see it progess over the 6 weeks. I am working on the project with one of the other volunteers, Rachel, & then the family who r going to live in the house. It...

Sep 16, 2005 - La Dia Del Independencia en La Esperanza

Yesterday was Independence Day in all of Central America with lots of big street parades & parties across the continent, with Honduras being no exception. Unfortunately this meant that we were unable to go to the volunteer project that day as there was no transport to get us there. All businesses were closed for the day & it became a big family day out for most. Luckily I was invited to join my host family watching the street parades go past the police station in the centre of town & it turned out to be a really entertaining day. The main...
