Part 7-Honduras, the street markets of San Pedro Sula-the tortilla market
Since I was scheduled to meet Santos at 8 a.m. to hit the markets, I first needed to gobble down an energizing breakfast on the concierge floor of the Hilton Princess. They serve a buffet breakfast with plenty of choices. The flavor of the fresh squeezed orange juice was incredible!!
I needed to catch a 1:30 p.m. bus to Copan Ruinas in western Honduras, so after breakfast, I packed my bags to be ready to go when I returned from the markets.
Santos was waiting outside the Hilton Princess to take me to the street markets at the appointed time. Off we went.
Our first stop was the tortilla market. I found it to be very interesting. The ladies that worked in the booths all smiled or laughed as I was taking photos of them making their tortillas. Here are some pics.
It was in the tortilla market where one of the women asked me if I wanted a girlfriend. I told her I was married, and like the lady in the fruit market the day before, she said it wasn’t important. She wanted to be my Honduran girlfriend anyway. I politely declined, but gave her a friendly smile.
On our way out, we passed the same tortilla stand. I gave the lady a wink, and all the rest of them had a good laugh!
As we left the tortilla markets, Santos said he wanted to take me to the beef and pork markets. Let’s go Santos!!
