Honduran Time

My experience in Honduras is one I will never forget! A typical day in Honduras started at the Atlantida Hospital. I spent the morning working with patients in the emergency room, recovery wing, and maternity wing. The doctors and staff mostly spoke Spanish but there were a select few that were bilingual. Working in the hospital helped work on my Spanish speaking skills. In the afternoon, I went to Spanish lessons. I spent four hours a day working on vocabulary and grammar. My teacher would sometimes take us to the market to learn about the Honduran culture and also work on my speaking skills. After school I would head home to spend the evening with my host family. We usually ate dinner together and then relaxed enjoying the warm weather.
My favorite part of the trip was my trip to Cayos Cochinos. I spent the day snorkeling and sight seeing. The islands were beautiful. We spent time with the native people to the islands and toured their homes. Everyone was so welcoming. It was definitely the highlight of my trip.

What would you improve about this program?
My trip was very eventful and a lot of transportation was needed because I did not live close enough to walk to the school and the hospital. I wish I could have lived closer to my school and hospital so that I could have walked more and saved some time and money. We had our own taxi driver that drove us to the places we needed to go but it would have be better if we could have walked.

Amazing Opportunity!

This was an absolute amazing opportunity that I would recommend to anyone! Our host family was so caring and fun while the school we were at was also well organized with such fun programs. I learned so much about the culture and people in just three weeks. I wish I could have stayed longer, I can't wait to go back :)
