Tegus in November

I spent my Thanksgiving break in Tegucigalpa, Honduras visiting friends and enjoying the country that I consider my second home.  I taught first grade at International School of Tegucigalpa from 2003 to 2006 and love returning every few years to see my friends and former students.  Tegucigalpa often gets dogged as not being a very picturesque city (and also having a really short runway, which makes for very adventurous plane landings), but I have to say that through my time there I’ve learned to love good old “Tegus” and the beauty it possesses.  This post has some of my favorite photos from the time I spent in the city back in November.  I’ll do a separate post soon with some highlights from my time outside the city.  Enjoy!

This is the church I attended when I lived there. It was so great to be back.

There’s probably some rule that I’m breaking right now by posting a photo that I took through a car window, but I’m ok with that. It was fun to see new roads and other improvements that have been made to the city since I lived there.

 

 

 

This is taken from the plane about to take off.  The black gate shows where a road used to be... the runway has been lengthened a bit since I first went there in 2003.

This is a market near the neighborhood of Satelite that I went to with my friend Ana.

Here is Tegucigalpa from the airplane- the peace statue on the hill and the national stadium at the bottom of the photo. I always try to get a window seat on the right when I fly out because I love this view of the city. 🙂
