The Haps in Hondo

So, I could try to give a detailed rundown on all that has happened today, but I think that my fellow blogger, La Gringa, has done a great job of explaining what's been going down. Basically, ousted President Manuel Zelaya returned to Honduras today and he's trying to get people all excited to protect and support him. He's currently camping out in the Brazilian Embassy in Tegucigalpa. All appears to be calm here in La Ceiba.

Any time a country has two people claiming to be president, and any time one of them is standing on a rooftop shouting to the people to gain support, there is a possibility of some unrest. In order to try to keep everyone safe, the government here has imposed a curfew that started at 4pm today and goes until 6pm tomorrow. I don't have any reason to believe that we'll actually be allowed out of our houses for the evening tomorrow, but we'll see.

Everything appears to be calm and peaceful here in La Ceiba. Luckily we went grocery shopping on Saturday, so we've got food. No classes tomorrow (since nobody is allowed to leave their houses), so Zeke is excited to spend a little extra time with mom and dad.

I'm hoping to catch up on some other blogging tomorrow during our time at home. Just wanted to let people know that things are okay with us, and we'll keep you all posted.
