I don’t know where I am right now!
Well that’s not altogether true. I’m in the sky somewhere between Houston and Tegucigalpa, Honduras. I’m sitting at the window seat and occasionally look out at cloud formations and the ocean beneath. I’m part of a group that is on its way to visit Trocaire workers and some of their projects and people in Honduras. I am well out of my comfort zone!
Feeling a bit nervous but grateful too for the opportunity to see and hopefully be touched by another side of the world and the lifestyle.
Our group is ten – two of Trocaire’s Irish based staff, two women (from Monaghan and Limerick), a permanent deacon from the diocese of Elphin and five priests. Most of them I had not met until a briefing day in Maynooth a few weeks ago. Have to say, it’s a very pleasant group and easy company to be with.
In an hour or so we will land in the capital of Honduras and take it from there, “day to day” as one of the group said to me a while ago. He’s right, that’s the only way to go. I hope to make a few notes as we travel and take a few photos. These, I’ll try to share as time and wifi allow.
I willl keep an eye out for the woman in the red Cilica that Hector met:)
