Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras - La Catedral de Santa Rosa de Copán

Rain rain go away, come on back another day!

Since our arrival in Honduras, the rain has been constant, which in turn has made traveling here somewhat difficult and long for us.  Despite the weather, though, it feels nice to be in a new place.

Honduras is quite different from the other countries we’ve visited up until now. 

Like Belize, the population here is very diverse; however unlike it, the lifestyles aren’t the same at all. 

Here, it’s rather chaotic, and you have people screaming all over the place; while in Belize it’s not the case at all. 

But that’s ok for me though. . . Another interesting thing is the fact that everyone seems to have light eyes here! 

Sounds silly, but true.  Feel a bit out of place with my dark eyes!!

Our first stop in Honduras was Santa Rosa de Copán.

Our visit was a little bit rushed because of the non-stop rain, unfortunately, but we did anyhow. 

Like in Africa, when the rain comes, everyone disappears!  

Consequently, we didn’t get a chance to try the local drink, Atol Chuco, which is supposed to be quite popular in Santa Rosa!  The lady must’ve thought she was gonna melt away from the rain, so she didn’t show up for work that day! 

Anyway, we were, however, able to try this yummy rice-type drink in the market, which was good enough for us.  It was like a liquified version of arroz con leche . . . hmm hmm good!!

Après avoir passé la frontière sans aucun problème, le but était d’avancer le plus possible vers les ruines de Copan.

On avança jusqu’à Santa Rosa. La pluie et la nuit commencèrent à tomber, j’ai décidé après être passé devant un quartier de maison neuve, d’aller taper quelques portes histoire de trouver un endroit pour dormir.

Et à la 2ème c’était bon, il fallait juste dormir sous le préau, mais avec la tente c’est nickel.

Après une bonne nuit de sommeil, nous voilà parti pour visiter cette petite ville tranquille et reprendre la route pour les ruines.
