Honduras, Part 2

Gosh darn – I love Panama!  We managed to find a really nice hotel with AC, wi fi, fridge, and microwave – for way less than we would have paid for a dump of a room in Costa Rica!  Anyway, John took advantage of the wifi to get the second part of the Honduras video uploaded!  YeeHaw!!

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.

One thought on “Honduras, Part 2

  1. Was surfing the net to find pix of Pespire, Choluteca & other little towns in Honduras and came upon your website. Imagine my surprise – my mom also served in the Peace Corps in 1976; she was stationed in Tegucigalpa. She was a registered nurse and ran a program in a clinic to teach mothers and children about hygiene. She writes in one letter in October 1976 of traveling to Pespire. She had the names of a woman who was with Save the Children program – Aoife Coleman – and also a couple of Peace Corps people. She was actually traveling to the south coast, but hadn’t been able to get any information about accommodations, buses, etc. She just took off anyway, intended to stop in Pespire to contact any of these folks to find out about the South Coast. She never hooked up with the Peace Corps folks, but did meet up with Aoife Coleman and spent a couple of days with her. What an experience that was. My mom wrote hundreds of letters while in Honduras and after all these years (and her death in 1981), my sister and I are memorializing them into book form. I’m adding pictures that I find on the internet of the little villages she visited as she tells of her travels. I am asking permission to use one or two of them for our book. The book is not being “published” per se; we are having it bound with plastic spiral binders and are going to distribute copies to family members. My sister was able to locate Aoife on the internet; she lives in Rye, England and has an antique book shop. Aoife was much younger than my mom, probably about early 30′s while my mom was 65 when she was in Honduras. As I look at pictures of the little villages, and read her letters (for the umpteenth time), I can see why people fall in love with Central America. It’s beautiful. I have no desire to travel there, but I can see why mama was so taken with it. In fact, she considered staying in Tegucigalpa when her tour was over, but thank heavens she came home to her daughters and grandchildren and we had her for a few years before she passed away.

    Love your website, so intresting what you are doing. Have fun, travel safe.

    P.S. Mama’s name was Lota Wood although she went by a nickname “Mac” Wood.
