That is a difficult question. There are days when things go well. But Honduras is a difficult place to deal with. San Pedro Sula is extremely hot and that is tough. I have to cross the street opposite of the turning cars, (San Pedro Sula has many one-way streets), because taxi drivers will try to hit me. I am often not served in restaurants. Yet my daughter is here and life goes on. I know many people and I manage to go where service is good to foreigners. School age students are kinder than in the United States. You must realize that lying is endemic here and if you are looking for honesty it is not the place to be.

What makes Honduras bearable is the weekend house near the beach on the north coast. La Ceiba is a much cleaner and prettier city. And the ocean provides a splendid view with at times a very clear image of the Hog Islands. The beach should be kept cleaner, however people are nicer and a good jog on the beach is good for one´s health. And yes I always jog with my .38 calibre just in case. I have never had any problems, but I know individuals who have, however not where I jog.
