Ok, I have been really bad lately by letting my blog posts dwindle just a little . I have been taking a couple of really tough classes in translation and interpreting that have been eating my lunch!
I stopped doing everything except studying for these classes. The sad part is my travel adventures have also been stacking up. Have I felt guilty for not blogging? Yes, everyday, especially since people have been sending me e-mails asking for information.
I also recently did a product trial on a travel security product called “Grab Guard” which is a really nifty travel product. I am going to write a review on it in just a few days, so you will want to stay tuned.
Ok, back to Honduras.
As you read in my previous post about the markets I visited in San Pedro Sula before arriving in Copan Ruinas; you could tell that I thoroughly enjoy the street markets of Latin America.
For me, there is no better education than seeing new things that you would never see otherwise. Not only, do you see different fruits, vegetables, crafts, art, but you also get a chance to talk with people who are just as intrigued with you as you are with them.
Does it help to speak some Spanish? You bet, but don’t let that stop you! I have found that through hand gestures (the nice kind), it can be quite easy to communicate with people who don’t speak your language.
In Copan Ruinas, Honduras there is a small market, but yet has some great produce as well as colorful useful products. The market is located right off the town square, so you can’t miss it. Just look for vendors standing around on the street in front and you will easily find the entrance. Let’s take a look at some of what I saw.
Some people like to just drive their truck and just park on the street at the town square or outside the market.
Once you go inside the market, the array of colors is overwhelming
Man, don’t they do a great job on the display of fresh produce in these street markets of Honduras? Often times, consumers buy produce everyday because they want it as fresh as they can get it.
I took a couple of photos of some other interesting stuff in the market. I will post those shortly.
