Green and mosquitoes-ish
Lago de yojoa is not only the largest lake in Honduras but was always on the important route for early indigenous groups and now on the country’s only real highway CA5. So easy and worth to stop by.
And even if you are not a bird-watcher, the possibilities of meeting 357 species of birds just around the lake – wakes up your imagination. So we found a funny place to stay: a brewery-guests house (D&D Brewery), started by some American guy, who wanted to live in Central America but also wanted to have a place with a real hamburger and a real beer. Nice change of food for some days, really!
In the garden itself, which is simply a piece of jungle with small, clean pool and small houses for guests, you can watch, while sipping the beer, a lovely humming bird for example. Just a metre from you! Or some other bird mates, about existence you have never heard.
The guests-house organises many trips around, you can go on the boat, eat bass fish, visit another archaeological site (here not Maya, but Lencas!). But we decided to go alone.
All the jungle stimulate your senses in a crazy way, and Tom was behaving there really funny. But maybe let’s leave it for a family, internal jokes box and let’s just show few pictures: of the boat he luckily didn’t use, of the lianas he did use and the mosquitoes, who always win the fight… Btw, our Hanna always makes us laugh with her sweet reactions: once when Tom killed the mosquito, she run to me asking for a plaster: – Mummy, mummy, the mosquito is bleeding!
