I think I’m going insane. I constantly have a crazy headache from the heat and my neck hurts.
That aside, we had our first day at our Spanish school!!!! Yayyyy….it was kinda boring, but hopefully it’s for the better, after all it would be a pity to sacrifice my countless but priceless brain cells to the heat for nothing. Excuse me while I go dunk my head in ice and eat tubs of ice cream.

Finally, after four hours of riding on a dirt cheap but very, very comfortable bus we have arrived!! Copan is best known for its Mayan ruins…so far I have not seen them-_- …false advertising anyone??
My dad and I were “amused” when our home stay family didn’t pick us up when we arrived. We cursed sinful curses as we trudged up an ancient forty five degree cobblestone hill to our school. We cursed all the way to our school. When we arrived at the school we were greeted by an elderly woman by the name of Cathy…which is weird because the owner of our school in Guatemala had the same name… Cathy promptly apologized and escorted us to out home stay family. I must say that the house we have this year is much nicer then our honestly house last year.
Anyways, my dad and I are gonna go chow on some local food….YUMMMM.
We shall keep you posted!

So….I’m back in central America….and you know what that means?? It means I get to charge down the sides of mountains at breakneck speeds and I have to put up with armies of little children begging for money…
The coolest part about Honduras is that it’s very humid….if you pucker your lips and suck air through your teeth really fast water starts to form in your mouth -_- .
Anyways, me and my dad are getting on a bus today and traveling for four hours to Copan (Every person with at least the brain capacity of a sparrow should know where this is).
I want to say sorry for not posting part two yesterday…so here it is.
Day Two-Part 2
My dad and I are on a plane to Honduras….nothing interesting happens….
Stay tuned for more!!

There is nothing like waking up to the bone shattering sound of a lawn mower! I just love it!! I hope out of bed and into the shower. What I really don’t understand about hotels is the soap and shampoo they give you, every time I step out of a hotel shower I smell like some sort of jam and get questioned about my “orientation”. Rest assured, I lean straight forward.
My angry rant aside, I am a bit more excited about traveling today…perhaps this is because I get to eat airport food….nevertheless I am excited and can’t wait to get of this ass numbing plane in order to transfer, in Houston, to an equally cursed plane.
Nothing can rival hurtling through the sky at 1000km/h in a pressurized metal cylinder.
Part two will be posted this evening…hopefully.
And so, as they say, the journey begins! I am sitting at front of an old, rather shabby, greyhound. My father sits next to me complaining about his soggy brown subway sandwich he bought three hours ago.
Frankly, I don’t know what to expect from this trip. I remember having this same exact feeling last year, my thoughts at the time were-“What the hell am I getting into?” Afterwards my train of thought included the following: My complete lack of Spanish in a Spanish speaking country, my dads awful accent, my dads incompetence at all travel related action, my dads competence at getting me in deep puddles of, to put it lightly, “dirt”. Afterwards my brain started exploring the life enlightening topic of owls.
Anyways, I have a fun four hour ride ahead of me with only a mentally unstable granny and my partially sane dad as company.
On a side note… It stopped raining. Yayyyyy!!!
