That is a pretty misleading title. Not because I’m not in Honduras (I am!) but because I am in my beautiful second home of Roatan, and they don’t speak Spanish here! Well, they do, but English (with a delicious Caribbean accent) is most islanders’ first language.
I arrived yesterday, promptly got a rum punch in each hand and have been catching up with friends since. There is definitely a different vibe here in the slow season. It’s also really rainy and gross right now and that always tends to make people a little weird when they’re used to so much sunshine.
I’m planning on just taking it easy, diving, and reading a book in the hammock today. Turns out that’s way better than working at two jobs on a Monday. Who would have thought?
I’m still not sure if the image posting thing works on this iPhone app I’m using to post this, but I’ll try. This is the only photo I’ve taken so far (my first peek at the reef while the plane was landing):

So glad you made it there safe and sound! And honestly, relaxing in a hammock with a good book sounds like absolute heaven to me. Tomorrow I defend my dissertation, so things are the complete opposite of chilled out on this end, and I sorely wish I were on some far away island… so, please, have a rum punch for those of us who aren't currently living the good life!
Wow – yikes! I had many, many rum & pineapples for you 🙂 How did it go??
Nothing like seeing a reef and knowing you're going to be down there soon… Delicious! Glad you're having a great time – keep us posted 🙂
I had so much anticipation and it definitely delivered! I had some of the best dives I've ever had!
