Sweating Like A Stuffed-Pig!!!

Well, well, well...so you've returned - expecting to find some pithy witticisms regarding life in Honduras no doubt...I'm not promising anything but I will see what I can do. It has been nearly two weeks since my little 2 prop airplane touched down in steamy La Ceiba and already a lot has happened...where have I been you might ask? why have I been all but absent from the "blogosphere"?
