The boys and The M love it here. Everything is an adventure right now, whether it's watching PBS in Spanish, or going to the grocery store, it's all fun. We have been working on getting the house ready for receiving students and now have internet, food, delicious coffee, towels, and other essentials.
Here the boys enjoy cooling off in our front yard during an afternoon rain shower. It rains frequently here. La Ceiba lies between the beach and the mountains. These run parallel to each other and leave a strip of land only a few miles wide. My guess is that when the weather systems come in from the coast, they hit the mountains and dump their rain. La Ceiba is lush, and the Pico Bonito national park is nearby.
Here Jono is having some Lego time. He is in a nice room with wooden floors and a wall full of huge windows. We have converted it into the playroom/computer room/entertainment center. Last night we watched a movie on the laptop; we had a copy of Mosquito Coast from 1986. Harrison Ford stars as an inventor that is fed up with the direction the culture of the United States is headed, so he moves his family to the jungles of Central America. There he builds a machine to produce ice for the natives, because "ice is civilization". Does this sound familiar? It's not exactly like our situation, but it was pretty close! Especially since I look like Harrison Ford.
