2 flights, 20 pieces of luggage and 3200 kilometers later we have arrived in Honduras!! We left Toronto in boots and coats which we quickly shed on arrival as the weather was beautiful and warm (~30 degrees Celsius)! It has been quite an adventure getting here but luckily all of our cargo made it safely to the airport in San Pedro Sula. We want to thank Avianca Airlines for generously waiving our over weight luggage fees. Without their help we would not have been able to bring all of our medication boxes!
We definitely didn't pass unnoticed carting our huge boxes marked with Canadian flags on them !Luckily we breezed through customs and didn't need to open all of the boxes for inspection like they did last year. We were so grateful at how smooth everything went as customs in Honduras can be quite tricky at times.
We were welcomed by two locals named Armando and Rigoberto who brought two government pick up trucks for transporting all of our supplies.
They drove us to our lodging in San Pedro Sula which is where we will stay tonight and then make our three hour journey to the city of Gracias tomorrow which will be our headquarters for the next six days. As they say in Honduras Hasta Mañana (until tomorrow)!
