A Long Drive

“They’re doing what?  Why are they here?”

I just couldn’t get it.  I walked into the house after doing a few errands and found a whole camera crew.  I figured they were friends of Claudia (who had come down for a funeral).

“No,” Claudia told me.  “They came looking for you.”

This is bizarre…  We’ve gotten a fair amount of press coverage here in Honduras with the whole Peace Corps reunion thing, but I never, ever, dreamed that a crew would simply drive five hours down here from San Pedro Sula to find us!

Apparently, they read the story that appeared in Hondudiario on Mother’s Day and wanted to do a story – but they didn’t know how to find us.  Then on Monday a local channel did a story – so they called them and found out where we are  staying and just showed up!

Fortunately, I didn’t have anything planned at the time so we could talk with them.   I would have felt really badly if they had come all this way and I  couldn’t talk with them!

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    Just wondered if you were shaken by the earthquake. Hope all is well for you and your friends in the region.
