One of the greatest pleasures of sponsoring a child with World Vision, is getting to meet him/her in person. I found out that I was the first sponsor to actually visit the project. Less than 10 have visited their child in all of Honduras..surprised? I know I was when I asked. The drive to the community was a rough one. 3 hours of dirt road, huge pot holes, mountain and getting pulled over by a police officer..don't ask..The day was an eventful one, over 200 or more of the locals came out to see me because they were curious, about who this outsider was, they expected a blond, Caucasian American. Unfortunately I'd go into details about why this leg of the trip turned disappointing, After having to explain it so many times, it got old. It pretty much set my mood when I arrived in New Jersey. I did get to check out the local waterfall "Pulhapanzak" and did some spelunking. Unfortunately I wanted to do much more, but my location and time was limited.
