I write now after a long hiatus, not because there was nothing to write, but because sometimes just living is a big job in itself. The last months in Costa Rica were a whirlwind of school projects, class trips, preformances, reunions, final exams, new friendships, and goodbye parties. I left La Estrella with tears, as it should have been, and I went home with a smile, as it also should have been. And so I entered life in good old DC, dove right in actually. In January I started grad school in American University's International Development program. February I became Women Thrive Worldwide's newest global development policy intern. The hope is that someday I will actually get paid for the things I love to do. In the meantime, I've taken up residence in my childhood room and have put off plans to buy a diamond-studded airplane until I somehow become rich and famous.... Once again I thought that I would be here in DC for awhile. I thought that FINALLY I would be ready to settle down for a bit. I guess I should know better my now. While normal people grow out of or get tired of the travelling, it's like my cocaine - I've gotten a taste and just want more. So, in four days I will be off to Honduras for three months. My internship with Women Thrive has led to an internship with their newest partner in Honduras, COMUCAP. Once again I will be living in the mountains, far from the beach, in a town known for being the coldest part of the country. At least this time there will be internet, paved roads, and a population in the 1,000s. Should be an interesting summer...

Honduras rocks
Hi Lacey - 2nd cousin Laurie here. I have awesome friends who bought land in Honduras - also inland - but I forget what town they are near. Can you tell me the name of where you're going? If it's anywhere near my friends land you must hook up with them. They are an incredible couple who travel a lot because he certifies organic agriculture, and she teaches midwifery and health all over the world. You'd love them! Let me know,

need information on Marcala

I sent you an email yesterday but I am not sure it went thru.
I did read with great interest your comments on your stay & activity in Marcala as I will be going there in about two weeks and would appreciate to have some practical info about the place. Have you by any chance seen what the local ceramic production looks like? Are local shops selling this production? Also, is it possible to have access to the internet in Marcala. Thanks.
