My trip to Nueva Armenia today

The hills around Copan are magnificent……..lush and abundant. It’s hard to believe that in a country that appears so rich in natural resources, there is so much poverty and hunger.


What you can’t see:
Is how high up we are or the amount of land that
is being destroyed by slash and burn or just how dark green the coffee plants area.


What you can’t smell is the smoke in the air from the cooking fires and burning of the hillsides …..and the smell of horses (as they are still a major means of transport)

What you can’t feel is the oppressive heat and just how rough the roads are
