Honduran Countryside

In my last post, I showed you some sites from the city of Tegucigalpa from my trip in November.  I had the chance to leave the city a couple times to visit a school and coffee plantation in a cloud forest, as well as going to my friends’ wedding at a beautiful place called Casa Blanca in the village of Santa Lucia.  I’ve also included a few personal photos at the end since the focus of my trip was more on people than places and I wanted to share a little bit of the great time I had with some of my favorite people who happen to live in Honduras.  🙂

Breaking photography rules again and posting a photo taken through a car window. I just loved what a classic Honduran scene it is… had to share.

This is a coffee plantation that supports an orphanage and school.

I believe this is the blackberry section of the ranch I visited.

Here is a photo of a few of my wonderful friends I was able to visit with during my trip.  It was so fun to be present for my friends' wedding!

I can't resist posting a few personal photos here of some of the wonderful people I was able to visit with while I was there.  It's so hard to believe my former first grade students are now in high school!  It was also great to see my friends' expanding families!

    Hi, I am the owner of the place where your friends got married and I just loved the photos you took and was wondering if you had any more for us to see! You are a great photographer and I hope you enjoyed the place. Thankyou. Sincerely, Alma Montes
