Travel Blogs from Copan
Everywhere you go it seems that if you have a television, you're tuned in to FIFA and you have a couple hundred close friends watching with you either out on the street or through your front windows or drinking your beer at your bar! Even as we drove yesterday for six hours to get to Copán from Antiqua we had the radio tuned to the soccer games. We have two young ...
