Planning On Leaving Honduras

Whether this actually happens or not will depend on a series of events over the next few weeks.  However, I need a change the violence is really getting to me lately and some of the people close to me know I am going through a very painful divorce so I need to be close to friends and my own family which means returning to the US for awhile anyway.

This will be a very difficult move for me and of course I will still keep my blog here on Honduras.  Honduras is as much a part of me as I am a part of Honduras.  I don't really know how I am going to deal with the culture shock of returning to the US after having been here in a 'banana republic' so  I laugh because they call us a banana republic but I really have a hard time picturing it that way.  The divorce though needs to come to a finish in the US I suppose and I need an attorney and to be there to complete that and then do the rest here.  I am really sad that the violence here in San Pedro Sula and no future outlook of it calming down has made me decide I may need a break in the US.  The economy is really rough here lately and it can be felt by everyone which has not helped me in the least.

My only positive outlook is my home is here and the property is in Olancho and I still have those things and my son who is Honduran will return with me to the states but we will be back here and as strong as ever in the near future..if I can avoid it though I will stay in Honduras and maybe just move to a calmer part of Honduras if that actually exists.
