Washing clothes in honduras

A bucket and washboard!!!


Tela is an interesting town--a bit smaller than La Ceiba and a beach. Some good restaurants there that have pretty good food but nothin beats the meals prepared by my hostess who always makes fried green bananas!!! These are yummy!! The hospital is smaller and fewer women birth each day; Around 15 versus 40 in La Ceiba.
Sadly the beaches are not very clean and there is a reef so one has to be careful going in. The pollution is pretty bad and getting use to this air is hard--

Happy new year

and i hope the new year is what everyone hopes it to be. I am sitting in a beachside restaurant waiting for a new years eve dinner.Its off and on raining--so they will set up the tables and new customers will sit then the rain moves them in. Then it stops and new people sit and it forces them in again. It is a never ending lesson in hope!!

I am heading on a bus to tela-- a more progressive hospital than La Ceiba. i will be allowed to show the nurses alternative ways of giving birth compared to laying in bed. Using the birth ball, squatting, hands and knees and standing. Being allowed to walk around and even getting the baby immediately on the moms chest is not normally practiced here.
I have brought Jose Miguel the baby doll and Natalie the pelvis to give some info to everyone about the mechanics if birth and the pelvis.
and there is a beautiful beach there!!
