I’m terrible at saying goodbye. I don’t like doing it and I avoid it if I can.

My last two weeks in Ciriboya passed in the blink of an eye. Before I knew it I was back in La Ceiba, sitting at a round table with all of the CAUSE Canada local staff (and Nanigui) enjoying a really great meal and a few good laughs. Another blink of the eye, and Shannon, Rosy, Paty and I are sitting around the table in the CAUSE office in La Ceiba saying our goodbyes. It is hard to believe that that moment has arrived, when eight months ago it seemed so far away.

Closing Time... Almost.

Sadly, in September the organic agriculture program came to an end in Iriona, and Luis our agronomist has since moved on to greener pastures (in this case a new agricultural project with a Honduran campesino organization).

Curry Confusion

A few weeks ago I had a conversation with my cousin about how I was looking to spice up my diet. I've noticed that I've fallen in to the same culinary rut I often find myself in at home. The rut where you are too busy or tired to try to cook new exciting things, so you opt for what is convenient and familiar.

Languages don’t come naturally to me. I earned straight ‘A’s all the way through grade 11 French, and yet I can still barely ask to use the bathroom. The only phrase I never forget, I didn’t even learn in school. “Where can we buy beer?” was taught to me over a card game in Quebec when I was 19, and I only really remember it because I said it to everyone I met for two straight months.

The other day I was riding the bus back to Ciriboya and found myself with a lot (7 hours worth) of time on my hands. I packed everything and the kitchen sink for my vacation, but somehow managed to forget the cord to charge my iPod, and without the musical distraction that would normally pass the extremely long trip back home, I was left to my own devices for entertainment.

It’s another beautiful day on Roatan Island…
