Honduras photos, Part 1

I was going to make this a series in spcteppy, but it's not a paid account so I can't embed media. So I'm going to have to do it here after all.

First, this statue is outside the airport at Tegucigalpa:




This is Tent City, erected in a motor pool, where I lived. The big metal boxes are called connexes and contained our showers and toilets. There were nicer than I anticipated.




The wet bulb registers 103 degrees:




High ranking officers and retirees who are on base long-term get to live in "red roofs". They look very Arizona to me.




This is the interior of my tent after a couple of weeks:




Here's my bed, with PFC Gustavo and reading material:




And finally, me in front of the JTF-B sign:




Next up: Animals

The connex showers, et al, are what we had in Iraq, too.

That's reassuring. I was very content with them, so if I have to live with them for a year, I'll be okay.

The only boggle with them is whether or not we got a water shipment to refill the pods that day. If not, you run out and then they're useless.

Yeah, we were hooked into a permanent water system. Even if we weren't, given that we were in a friendly Central American country, refilling them wouldn't be a problem, dry season or no.

The worst is coming back from 5 days on the road only to find out there's no water.

I find that first photo fascinating when I enlarged it. I'm guessing it has something to do with gods.

In the photo (3rd from bottom) why is everything staked and tied? I have no idea unless it is to protect against sand or mosquitoes.

That's a good photo of you. Thanks for sharing.

Last but not least, has Mei-Mei's blood sugar come down yet?

Those are mosquito nets around the cots.

We haven't tested Mei-Mei's glucose today (letting her de-stress) but she's acting normally, which she wasn't before. We'll test tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing! And thanks for the T!
