I’ve been to Honduras, I think, four times in my life–twice that I can remember and a couple of trips when I was an infant. It’s where my parents were born, my mother grew up, and a majority of my extended family still lives. My mom still goes back regularly to see our family in the capital city of Tegucigalpa and I’d love to take my wife there one day to meet them as well. It’s a beautiful country, with a rich culture, and a generous people. Of course, to me the best part of Honduras is my family, but I’d have to say the food is a close second; everything just tastes better down there.
One thing about Honduras that isn’t so great, is the murder rate: it has the highest per capita murder rate in the world with 87 killings per 100,000.
