Honduras-Funny and Scary

Honduras-Funny and Scary

I had the most terrifying experience while trying to cross the border in Honduras. But still I managed to laugh myself out and enjoyed the greatest moment in my life:P Well, sometimes you got to do what you’ve got to do:P AND..they have the best cigar IN THE WORLD!!!!ahahaahhaha!!!! How can I NOT like Honduras:P

Hm..hello, the words on my North Face backpack started to peel off and I had to write it back myself..oh wait, I think I spelled the words wrong:P

My story began while me and my friend tried to cross the border from Belize to Honduras. The chicken bus we took supposed to cross the border before dark, but we didn’t know the driver will drove around the city to pick up and dropped off local people for 1 1/2 hours. Byt the time we got close to the border, it’s already dark and pouring rain outside. After we crossed the border of Belize, the bus suddenly stopped and a group of people jumped into the bus. They said we had to get off and followed them to cross the border because the bridge was blocked!! We were so scared because we didn’t know whether they would tried to rob us or what after we got off. It’s so dark and rain heavily outside we couldn’t even see anything outside. So, I told the driver WE WOULD NOT FOLLOWED those people. He must drove us back to Belize and find a hotel to stay that night. I told him we just crossed the border and a lot of people saw us on YOUR bus. So, after some argument, he finally agreed to drove us back to belize!!! Phew…That was a long day, we even ran out of money for the hotel but luckily we found an ATM nearby!!! That’s was a long nite!! So, the next day , we tried to cross the border again and we found this-

The bridge collapsed because of heavy rain!!!! Holy, I was so glad I didn’t try to cross the border that night!!!..CUS we need to took a boat to cross the river…hello….in the dark???!!!! are you serious??!!!

It’s a VERY good learning experience for me! After that..life goes on:P

At Copan Honduras, there’s a lot of Mayan pyramids but ofcourse NOT as impressive as Tikal Guatemala!!

  9. Wow, that was some extreme night travelling there!!! I bet you were scared! You chose the best solution, going out in the dark with those strange men and cross the river in a boat while it was raining was definitely not a good idea.
    Travelling really is hard sometimes, but it makes the journey more special 🙂 Glad you got safe to the other side!

    • I love Guatemala the MOST. Antigua Guatemala is SO beautiful and there’s lots of things to do! The mountains are just beautiful and the MOST IMPORTANT, there’s a lot of things to shop!!! ahahah. Caribbean part of Honduras is beautiful too but it’s just like Caribbean….touristic and pricey!! Regarding BELIZE…erike!!! Long story. My main goal in Belize was just to dive in the BLUE HOLES. I had some pictures on my previous post regarding wet suits. I agree Belize is just OK, their transportation system is retarded!! Long bus ride with no other options! And if you want to take a taxi, it’s very expensive!!! I took a 30 mins ride it cost me US $70!! The water is amazingly clear though, I went snorkeling with the ray and manatee . Blue hole diving was disappointing cus there’s nth much to see down there. I saw some shark and a few fishes..that’s it. It’s just a blue hole afterall but it’s a great experience!! My story started with a hurricane I encountered in Belize..will talk about that later:P..cheers

      • blue hole sounds awesome. I went to Belize hoping I’d get to see the blue hole but since I don’t dive, it was super expensive (like $500) for me just to get a tour of the blue hole so I didn’t see it… I went to Ambergris Caye and thought that was “alright”…

        • $500??? Really, does it include helicopter ride or what? Why so expensive? 2 tank dives was only $250!!! Wow..that’s a rip off! I didn’t see the whole blue whole too since I am just taking a boat to dive. when the people told us we already arrive the rim of blue hole, it’s NOT pretty at all! A polish guy I met there said he was so disappointed!!! There’s nth to see down under!!! I guess if you don’t see that up from the sky, there’s nth special about this blue hole!!!! I do not have a”thing” for this country ..sorry:P

  20. oh, and btw, that cigar pic is HILARIOUS. OH.MY.GOD. hahaha you HAVE to have more pics of it (maybe just not post-appropriate? haha).

    • lol…when I first saw them I was laughing so hard too!!!..yea, i had more photos of me trying to pretend sucking it!!!….aahha, I don’t think I will post it though:P

  42. Don’t worry about your typo! My english is not very well so this doesn’t disturb me 🙂 I watched the movie “Hotel Rwanda” several times and cried.

    In Poland, I live not far from the Belarusian border. In my country, we suffered a lot, not only from the Nazis but also from the Russians – you know about the concentration camps for polish people?
    Each country has its own black card in history…
    Now I live in Belgium and pictures on my last post come from Brussels, Merode area;

    • I love talking to you!!!!. I have been to both Belgium and Poland!! I actually have been to a concentration camp in Poland but since it’s not related to my blog so, I didn’t post it. You know china had been invade by japan and many countries too so I know war made people suffer. That’s why when I went to Africa, it impact me SO much!!! I always though African people are so poor because their land are NO GOOD. But it’s not. There’s tons of resource over there, but it’s just civil wars..lots of them make people suffer. I was really really so sad about this!!!. I had seen many European try to make up by supporting those Africa child because of their guilt!!! I think this is NO good because this actually spoil them because nobody actually tell them what happened! They do not even know European once make their people as slave….so many thing!!!Being traveled to Africa really impact me so much. And you know I have a page on my blog talk about a campaign I want to do for African people during my upcoming 10 month trans-Africa trip. I really really want to help them , also to explain to them what is the right thing to do:))) I mean history is already past, it’ doesn’t mean any ethic is bad. I love people from every country. It’s just i would love Africa people to know they must stop fighting…NOW an be strong..and not to destroy the beautiful mother earth:)

      Sorry for having such a long comment. Have a nice day:)

  43. Tammy, I hope I will see as much plases as you have seen, some day. It relly enriches the soul and broads the mind, I believe…
