Farmer to Farmer´s Honduras Delegation is off to a Great Start!

Andres y Zacarias arrived with great success late Thursday evening to spend the night at a fantastic spot in San Pedro Sula! Dos Molinos B&B ( connected us with two current peace corps members, provided us with a great pancake breakfast and now will help us get to the bus, taking us to our new years celebration in Comayagua with many friends and great food, music, games, stories and joy.  We hope to have photos for next time!

Testing the invitation

Hello all,

I invited Jen and I to contribute using our other e-mail account. I am posting this to be sure it works. It looks like in order to post, you will need to set up a google account, but that does not mean you need to be using gmail. Just sign in using your regular email as a username.

Hello Intrepid Web Users!

As we are about to embark on three different trips to Central and South America, we decided to initiate a blog, so people could post stories and photos from the trips.

Please contact me (Andy Gaertner <>) to either send me a post that I can put up or I can send you an invitation to become an author on the blog.
