I spent the weekend of July 18th in Trujillo. If I am going to be transferred from the north coast I had to visit one of the premier sites in Honduras. Trujillo is where Cristobal Colon stepped onto the American mainland for his first and only time in 1502, also his last voyage to the new world. This is where my friend Jen is posted. It took me five hours to get there because of two road blocks due to the political unrest. It’s normally a two and a half hour trip. Fernando and Linda are posted to Santa Fe, a small Garifuna village a short distance from Trujillo. We spent the weekend at a grand Garifuna fiesta dancing and eating and drinking. My last night there I had dinner with Jen and her host family at a restaurant on the beach. Jen graciously transferred her pics from her camera to my memory card and I transferred them to my computer’s hard drive. I sure miss my stolen camera.
