Aeropueto Y Autobus (Correct Spanish???)


Day 3 Airports & Bus rides (I realize this isn't very flowery or descriptive, but I haven't had a lot of spare time to do this.)
                                        The airport in the capital city of Honduras.



Today our main objective was to pick up 50+ people from the first team from the airport.  They were coming in on their different airlines within about an hour an forty-five minutes of each other.  Basically, this meant we had a lot of standing around and waiting at a crowded airport.  Teguc’s airport makes Nashville look fancy, but it serves its purpose.



                                             Waiting in the shade, it is much warmer down in the city.



                                              The matching shirts make it easy to identify our team as they arrive.

As the different flights came in, we collected their passports, exchanged some American money for lempiras for them, and walked with them to get something to eat.  There was a little excitement at the airport and some of our group heard people saying that the former president was coming in on one of the flights.  If you will remember, he was the one that was run out of the country for illegally trying to change their constitution.  That was also the reason we had to cut our trip short because they were advising everyone to leave.  I didn’t personally see him, but I did see the news cameras.

                                      Just the beginning!!


Some of the beautiful countryside between Tegucigalpa & Catacamas.




After we picked up all of our team members, we loaded up the bus for a 4+ hour ride to Catacamas.  Once you leave the city the country-side is beautiful, it is not uncommon to see cows and horses roaming along the roads (or in the roads).  We made it here around 7:30 and had dinner at a local restaurant owned by a member of the church we will be working with.  We were tired and the food was delicious!!







                             Sorry for the finger in the picture!  This was taken out of the bus window.

                                        The hotel has a very nice pool, but we are only here till after church on Sunday.  We also have lots of work to do, so I'm not sure how much relaxing we will get to do!  I know for one, I'm enjoying the very cool A/C!



We are staying at a hotel that seems to have good Wi-Fi.  I’ll try to add some pictures too!
