Boats are canned, scrapped, put on the back burner until the memory fades.

Le Ceiba, Hondur-ass! Worst place so far. Don't let the pretty coloured buildings and laughable electricity cables bundled in the hundreds lining the streets fool you.
Utila, Honduras - an island paradise with the 2nd best barrier reef in the world (2nd to Australia of course).
5 days of back to school, in the class room & unda da sea! Once past the paper work you feel like you're flying and at the same time peeking into the world which covers 71% of the globe, with fish swimming by as though you are one of them & discovering the strangest of creatures blending into their own front yard. You dive down and swim amongst fluorescent coral and fish of the most unusual shapes, then you come to the edge of the reef which is like coming to the edge of a
Cliff and you look down and.... float off the edge with miles of blue Endlessness beneath you. Once you get over feeling that you should be drowning.... you realise you can actually breath and the rest is easy and a dream.
Copan was our only other and final stop in the country, despite us being the only not natives there pretty much. A tiny Colonial village with a city of Mayan ruins just a short walk out of the village. A set of steps there hold the longest ancient inscription dating back to 700AD about the times as they were back then, the only problem being that when they were excavated in the early 1900's the builders put them back in the wrong order...?!
The highlight- the large Macaws, brightly coloured birds and giant tailless rodents living in the area.
