Safe and sound!

We've arrived! All 12 of us who departed from Newark bright and early this morning are now safely checked into our hotel (Copantl) in San Pedro Sula. The flight was totally uneventful, and the customs process was long but otherwise smooth. We were greeted by representative of the Episcopal Diocese of Honduras at the airport, and a hotel bus was waiting to pick us up. The drive to Copantl was an interesting one - a mix of struggling industry and blatant poverty. Even though San Pedro Sula is a city, there are indications that it is a very rural place - fields, livestock and other animals giving testimony.

We are scheduled to attend mass outside Santa Barbara tomorrow morning, after which we will begin to set up our clinic - we begin work Monday morning...more later!
