Honduras

The Mayan ruins of Copan was the primary objective this trip. Iíve never seen Mayan anything except for a Nike commercial of an athelete jogging up a temple in Tikal (Guatemala) or the photos of National Geographic. It took my breath away once in the Copan complex. It was hard to capture the beauty digitally but youíll see Iíve made a concerted effort. A number of Hondurans warned us not to drive in Honduras at night and we followed their advice to a T. On the way south to Tegucigalpa, we made a pitstop in Comayagua and saw what supposedly is the oldest clock in the western hemisphere (built by the Moors over 800 years ago and incorporated in a 17th century Spanish cathedral). Tegucigalpa is massive and poor. It was exciting to see that a chiropractor (Dr. Robert Funk) had actually made inroads in this country. Deb got sick off some nasty Chinese food the one night we stayed in the capital and we were glad to leave early the next morning.
