Well I must say the weirdest thing happened to me on the bus ride to Honduras. After sitting next to a girl for about a day and a half I found out in the last couple of hours that she is Adventist! But it gets better, then about an hour later I found out that the girl sitting behind me (not related to Adventist #1) was Adventist as well! I must say, i´ve never even met one Adventist before on a bus, so two was a shocker! But it was pretty cool too, because getting through the border and eating lunch turned out to be easier (and cheaper) because I was hanging out with two Hondurans. After our goodbyes I was dropped off in Comayagua with no map or any idea of where to go. I stopped a taxi driver and asked him how far it was to the Adventist school and he assured me it was an hour walk from there and that I needed his services. With no map I was helpless and after about a 2 minute drive in his car we arrived (those scoundrels!). I was greated at the main entrance to the school by a lady that said, ¨Stop, I know who you are, wait here!!¨ After about 2 minutes Jules walked out and after about 5 seconds of bewilderment gave me a hug (100 points for me!). I guess they told her that an angry mom was at the door walking to talk about her kids grades (which I guess happens a lot) so not only was she happy to see me, but relieved that I wasn´t an angry mom.

I had a lot of fun that week with Jules and the other SMs there (Arlette Taboo, Devin, Destiny, Jesse and Griselda) exploring the town of Comayagua, which interestingly enough was the capital of Honduras at one point so it does have a lot of history. I must say that a highlight was definintely the licuado shop (milk shake) where every day we went and ordered up a mix of fruit, peanut butter and whatever else we wanted in it... hmmm. A final highlight was the last day there when Jule and I snuck off to a village about an hour away and climbed to these water springs. The springs were great, but unfortunately we didn´t have a lot of time up there and even missed our bus coming back, but thanks to nice Honduran-truck drivers we made it back in time for the school´s Chrismas program and for free! From here Jules and I are traveling on different buses to meet Bill and Cheryl in the middle of the night at a little restaurant/turn off to Monteverde to see Mary and Michelle again. See you there...
