I spoke with folks who know today, and our Honduras trip is not threatened. There is no unrest in the La Ceiba (north-central) area and our trip is not affected. This news comes from two conservative sources. The cancellation of the other group's trip (headed to southern Honduras) seems to be an isolated case of nervousness on the part of the Honduran church host. There may be more to the story than we are getting, but we have checked with reliable sources in La Ceiba and all is well.
Here is a photo of our team from last August. It was taken at a beach outside La Ceiba. You can clearly see there are no pirates, yahoos, or otherwise questionable characters. The fellow on the left, Juan, won the prestigious Goldwater scholarship this year. He's doing a summer internship at MIT this summer. Muy bueno.
