|Gracias, Honduras. Highest Honduran mountain peak in the clouds.|
Driving the “back” roads in a third world country can quite often be exciting, from the occasional river crossing, to now seeing a person on the side of a dirt road who had obviously seen better days.
My wife didn’t answer my question at first until we finally drove by the body. I could tell she was confused and shocked at first, she wasn’t quite sure what we were both seeing.
“Oh my gosh. OH my gosh. Oh MY GOSH!” Silence followed with her hand covering her mouth.
I could tell she was getting her fill of being in a place that wasn’t quite like home. This was only our second day in Honduras. I wasn’t expecting to see a body on the side of the road, but it wasn’t unexpected for me either. I had lived in Honduras for 2 years prior to this visit and had gotten used to seeing “unexpected” things. We didn’t stop the car. There was nothing we could do. It did make for interesting conversation for the next few hours.

Add this to your bucket list. Copan is a must see - must experience place.
