Real Honduran News

Three blogs posting a variety of new regarding Honduras include: narconewshondurancampesino and lagringasblogicito.  Beware the feuding between the last two -- but if you read between the lines of all three, you can get a clearer picture of what is happening here.

Living Under A Curfew

Remember when you were a teenager and thought the curfew imposed by your parents was bad? Now try a 4 pm to 7 am curfew imposed by the government and you just ran out of drinking water! And no, you can't drink the tap water.

Then you hear the curfew is extended from 7 am to 6 pm! I'm going to have to start collecting rain water and boiling water from the tap -- and hope the electricity stays on.

These are some of the few joys of living in a developing country like Honduras. I just hope things do not turn violent and that this coup situation resolves itself peacefully.
