Tour of the City -Gracias Lempira

We had our orientation this morning. Lempira means “Lord of the Mountains” We got Habitat Honduras shirts and hats! The shirts say Somos albaniles which is the quote made famous by the newly Sainted Bishop Oscar Romero from El Salvador. We then did a walking tour of the City. We visited 3 of the 4 churches. San Sebastián, San Marcos, and Santa Lucia.

We had an amazing lunch at the home of a local artist, Jose Eduardo. He’s also an amazing chef. He shared his current artwork with us. It told of a story of a crazy man and woman that live in the City. (See photo of his artwork)

Then we went to Parque Nacional Celaque. There are 287 different species of birds.

We then went to Fuerte San Cristobal (Fort)it is just above our hotel.


Tonight after dinner we’ll go to mass at one of the churches we visited earlier today!
