Time to brush up on my Spanish, as we leave for the Choluteca region of southern Honduras on February 5th. This will be the 8th time (I have lost count) I have been to this area to work on various projects. Although each year is different, each year is the same in so many ways. Although I will miss welcoming our new buyers into their brand new homes in the Nashville area, it will be a great time to reflect on just how fortunate we are to live in Middle Tennessee.
We will arrive in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, the capital city around lunch time.
It will be warm and we will probably stop at KFC for a bite before beginning the 4-hour drive to Choluteca, where we will rendezvous with others and drive another 1.5 hours to our home for the week, Hotel Barcelona, in San Marcos de Colon, Honduras, very close to the border with Nicaragua. The first floor of the hotel is a department store chain operated by WalMart.
We will pick up our rental trucks and trek down the Pan American Highway, where you see something different every time. Landslides are very common, and so are the ways they are fixed.
This year, our group will be installing electricity into the homes of 21 families. During the week, we will spend time with many old friends, and make a lot of new friends. More details to come when we return!
