Explorations guest appearance

leave a comment »

Needless to say, I’m home safe and sound from a fantastic trip to Honduras.  I wrapped up the week with almost 7,000 images, which I’m slowly editing down to a manageable group.  More outtakes, and eventually final images, will be posted here soon — I promise!

In the meantime, I’m also preparing my Explorations show for a guest appearance at the Cabrini Green Legal Aid’s annual Wine Tasting (and art show) fundraiser event.  The organizers are expecting hundreds of attendees, all of whom will be treated to an evening of wines, art, schmoozing, and a generally warm fuzzy feeling about supporting an incredible cause.

The event is tomorrow night, Thursday May 13th.  If you’d like to attend and haven’t bought your tickets yet, all the information is available here or here.

Honduras trip log: La Ceiba

leave a comment »

I’m finally getting to a chance to post a new update, but where to begin?

At my last post, I was waiting for my luggage to join me here in Tegucigalpa, and thankfully it arrived later that day.  We picked it up at the airport on Tuesday afternoon, headed home to repack for our trip to the North Coast, and went right back to the airport (my third time there in 24 hours).  We caught two propellor plans, enjoyed a hazy sunset on our way out, and arrived in La Ceiba late Tuesday night.

After the first of a series of painfully early 4:30 am starts, we piled into the back of a pick-up for a two hour ride out to the forest.  We stopped for breakfast at what looked to be a Honduran truck stop, and were on the trail by 8:00 am.

Let’s just say the rest of the day proved to be very adventurous in more ways than one (including pulling over a dozen ticks off of me over the next few days).  Unfortunately, I need to pack my bags and catch a flight home, so I’ll write more about our hike into the forest in my next post.
