Tiff sent this yesterday:
When I told you about the 3 streets in Caye Caulker--I forgot to tell you the island is only a little over 300 feet wide at its widest point and about 2 miles long--funny huh. Like a funny tiny world. Anyway our flight into Honduras was supposed to get in late and of course we could make no reservations because no one (in our price range) has a web site.
Anyway we were a little worried as midnight in many Central American Cities is not somethinfg to look forward to. Anyway there was this mix up on the plane leaving San Salvadore and is usual in those situations, we made friends with a local heading back
to La Ceiba. He called and got us a room and shared a cab with us and told the cab where to go, etc. Anyway the funny part is he had people coming up and asking for his autograph when we landed. We asked him what that was all about and he said,"Well, I am a little bit famous." Come to find out, he is this musicologist that travels all over the world doing fusion music of all sorts including folkloric Honduran. He was a fount of wisdom--a true student of
his own land.
We are at Utila Honduras now and are taking a boat out to an uninhabited island caye tomorrow where we will be dropped off and picted up later. It is great snorkeling out there, at least that is what we hear. We are staying until the 13th at a place called 'The Lighthouse'."
