Aug 15, 2012 - Wild wild west!

So we all slept through the border crossing into Honduras as the bus driver had all the passports and before we knew it we were waking up in tegucigalpa! Here's where the fun began as we hoped into a taxi from the armed guarded bus compound to the next bus company that would bring us to le ceiba and onto Utila! we chose not to fly in the end as the airport was rated in the top ten most deadly airports in the world with planes regularly hitting trucks and buses on the main road beside the airport! The YouTube videos of landings are something...

Jan 8, 2012 - Valle de Angeles, Honduras

OMG what a day! This was the first of our two longest travel days. The 5am departure was painful, and then most of the group was pissed at Steve, because we were trying to sleep, but he wanted the reading lights on only for him, rather than using a flashlight or head lamp. (Totally inconsiderate as usual.) We made it to the border about 7:15, but we had been having trouble with the bus most of the morning. Lou had called ahead to the tour office so they could find us another bus, but this meant we had to spend hours waiting at the border...

Aug 1, 2011 - Dodgy part of the city.

Tegicigulpa, Honduras, 01/08/11 Dodgy part of the city. We left the hostel early in the morning hoping to make it to the direct bus that would take us to Tegicigulpa, Tegu to the locals, and the capital of Honduras. The bus station in Tegu, of which there are many in the same area, is located in the dodgy part of the city. The bible said that crime here was a major problem. There were gangs of transvestites mugging people and they had been known to mug tourist. The bible also says that that’s something you wouldn’t want to admit to on your...

Jul 8, 2011 - Tegucigalpa

Today was just a travel day. We ended up travelling to a place called Tegucigalpa which is the capital of Honduras. We didn't really spend much time in this city as it was meant as just a stop over before we head off towards Nicaragua to the city of Granada.

UPDATE 2019: ‘I Can No Longer Continue to Live Here’ What’s driving so many Honduran women to the U.S. border? The reality is worse than you’ve heard. Jill Filipovic is an Arizona State University Future of War fellow at New America. This project was supported by the International Women’s Media Foundation. TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — In a small town tucked in the hills outside Tegucigalpa, there is a stuffed gray bunny rabbit that knows a little girl’s secrets. “I tell him all my things,” she says. “About how I’m doing, and when I feel sad.”...

Jul 18, 2009 - Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Mel and Mich show)

Mel and Mich, Mich and Mel, it sounds a bit like a comic duo and maybe the political crisis in Honduras is slowly descending into a farce with Zelaya (Mel) doing his media show since Friday in Las Manos on the Nicaraguan side of the border. When I came through Las Manos on Friday a week earlier, the bus service had resumed service a few days before, even though the night curfew was back on, things actually went rather smoothly. The Nicaraguan and Honduran border guards boarded the bus, quietly checking the passports, then we had our bags...
