The north coast of Honduras is such a beautiful land. Everywhere you look multiple shades of green fill the landscape. Stands of coconut trees, banana, tamarind, mango, date, forests with trees I can’t identify and fields of pineapple stretch as far as the eye can see. Several rivers, the Ulua, Lean, Cangrejal, Cuero, San Juan, Papaloteca and the Salado among them drain down onto the fertile coastal plain from the Nombre de Dios mountain chain with its tropical-forest clad, cloud-covered peaks as a backdrop. I accompanied the youth group Jovenes sin Fronteras on a reunion, a learning retreat, to a riverside park on the San Juan River that was a wonder to behold. Our learning objective was HIV/AIDS prevention demonstrating the proper use of condoms to ten youth who will teach others of their peers. We had a great lunch on this beautiful Friday afternoon and played games to foster trust and self-esteem.
