Ok...so I don't have a computer so I haven't been able to blog. BUT, so great. Praise the Lord because my friend next door has a computer and internet. :)
Anways, I also feel as though I should say more about the Honduran culture.
So, people here always say "cheke", which means cool. Also, it's normal for men to stay in the house with their family when they're old (like 29 years old). I was really surprised!
The men piropo here, which means that men are always saying things when women pass by...sometimes a little nasty, but luckily I don't know what they're saying. But, one day it might hurt my feelings.)
The bannanas here are SO cheap. 2 lempiras...That's like $.10. I LOVE bannanas.
Also, here I eat...beans, rice, tortillas, pico de gallo, cereal with HOT milk, guacomole, etc. I LOVE the food here!
At first, the hot milk was interesting, but I actually like it. There are some things that I don't like...one of the fruits here is not so tasty. BUT, I love fruits. Also, they eat a lot of sweet bread and there is always a pulperia on the corner, which is like a family owned store. It's a cheap way for people to get money. There's at least one on every corner! And, most of the time, their house is attached. LOL.
My house doesn't have running water most times. BUT, we have plenty of water that they store in big containers near the toilet, in the shower and near all the sinks. It's really interesting taking a bucket bath every day. But, we have two or three televisions. AND, my family is really clean. They clean (my host brother who's 17 actually..which is also intereing in a machismo culture that a man cleans) every week by sweeping, mopping, and dusting. The house is also pretty spacious with a huge back yard...pics to come.
You CANNOT put the toilet paper in the toilet. Also, sometimes you have to throw water in the toilet pretty hard to flush the toilet. It's pretty fun. LOL.
My project (Youth Development)...
What we do...Yo Merezco (Preventing Teen Pregnancy), drug prevention, teaching English to adults, Colgate (teaching children to brush their teeth), tutoring Math, Spelling, Reading, etc.
More next time because this is really long.
