travelling.....



I came across this video and brought back memories. I went in and out of this city many time while living in Central America. in Tegucigalpa they have one of the shortest runways in the world. you can literally see the highway crossing and chainlink fence right before the plane lands and right after you take off. It was always a small thrill. Another thing is before landing when the plane drops down into the city and the mountains that surround seem to be right outside your window. while I'm on the topic, another fun flight was the small russian plane that took us from the mainland to the bay islands, on Utila where you land on a sort of sand gravel runway near the beach. ha!
Honduras, te quiero y regreso bien pronto....

I grew up in La Ceiba. The one runway that also scares me is the very short Roatan island one. The jet always stops really short of the last few inches of some rocks and then ocean. Happy La Ceiba's runway is good sized.

Btw, nice blog. Let's say I can relate to your closet bit. Though, I'm mostly out.
