On the Way to Huehue

A travel blog entry by team-elephant


... of crowded markets and congested traffic; unremarkable but good fun nonetheless.

We stayed only three nights in Huehue so we haven't yet qualified for the T-shirt but we did make one observation. The city has a large number of competing religious groups. Not just the usual Catholic presence, but Pentecostals aplenty, Jehovah's Witnesses and some other relatively evangelical protestant sects. The only other foreigners we saw seemed to be in the ...
