Una Dia Mas

We are officially done saving the world and have now transitioned nicely into being tourists. We finished our work on the houses and are now in a tourist-y town called Copan. Our hotel is awesome. But then again, we are very easily impressed now.

Our showers at the last place were actually plugged into the wall, which seemed highly safe, seeing as though electricity and water have been known to be a great combo. The showers were also quite small and the hot water was quite moody, so once we got the hot water going we didn´t want to turn it off. This resulted in grabbing a towel, wrapping it around my body and jumping out before the towel was just as drenched as I was. And trying to avoid the before mentioned electrocution. It was all quite an adventure.

The showers at our fancy hotel now are HUGE, so huge. And they have hot water ALL THE TIME. And no exposed wiring. Awesome. AND they are big enough to have a party in. Without risking the whole party getting electrocuted. Ahhh, the good life.

They have many a tourist-y thing to do here and I have been participating in them all, cause heaven forbid I have a free minute and a half on my ¨vacation¨. Yesterday we went horseback riding. Oy. I think I can now safely mark both housebuilder and cowgirl off my list of possible careers. My horse did not enjoy being anything but first and anytime any other horses came near it would start running away. And I would start bouncing. A lot. Which dislocated only about three of my virtabre. Nice.

So anyways, I´m coming home in a couple of days, ready to once again embrace technology and non-fatal showers. It´s been a great trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and gratifying travel experience. Although you will quickly find that it has very little to do with saving the world and a lot more to do with the world saving you. We´ve all received a lot more than we´ve given this week. And that´s not even counting the stomach viruses and the pulled muscles.

Will write again once I´ve made it onto US soil...
