Toto, I don't think we're in the Dominican Republic any more

We have finally made it to Honduras after 4 weeks of trying. We were struck by the beauty of the place as soon as we landed. We are only a few kilometers out of Tegucigalpa but it is very rural, mountainous, and green. It's also much cooler and pretty wet. We are headed out to our "Field Based Training" site tomorrow where we will start to focus on our assigned project of "Municipal Development." We also continue with our intensive Spanish classes. Our training site is a bit further from the capital but we think it will be topographically similar. There are lots of steep hills covered with an interesting variety of vegetation and it all seems very fertile. We are in a very comfortable home where we will return in September for a couple of weeks. Tomorrow we will meet a new family who will be our hosts until then. Peace Corps continues to take very good care of us.

Our new site won't have Internet access. We'll see in a couple of weeks if we can arrange some weekend travel to a town with an Internet cafe.
