We caught the 10:30 am bus from Copan, retracing our steps to San Pedro Sula.  We found it interesting that one of the fellows who worked for the bus company took everyone's picture before they boarded the bus.  No quite sure why, though there was quite tight security when you boarded the bus.  All passengers were submitted to a body search with a metal detector (men search male passengers and women search the women) and you had to produce identification.  Carry-on baggage is all checked over.  This was the standard at least for traveling on the Hedman-Atlas line.  Recalling how badly I felt during the bus trip to Copan, we both took motion sickness pills which we later regretted as they left us feeling rather light-headed and disoriented.
 
I really appreciate the humidity in a more tropical environment, particularly when our climate in Saskatchewan is so dry.  Your skin feels more moist and my hair actually has some body.  Martin's hair, however, turns to friz.
 
Fruit is a major export of Honduras.  On our various road trips, we saw lots of trucks hauling bananas; Dole's headquarters is located at Tela on the north coast.  Watermelon and pineapple were also in season while we were visiting.  Martin particularly enjoyed the fruit shakes or "liquados" which are made with either milk or water.
 
We've noticed lots of dogs in Honduras, fewer cats.  The animals seem to be cared for fairly well and seem to be relatively well fed and healthy. Many seem to belong to someone because they often have collars, although, with the number of dogs we saw, Honduras could certainly use a spay/neuter program.
