After our time in Roatán was over, we flew back to Tegucigalpa where my sister lives. After a long day of traveling we came back to her house and they had arranged for a masseuse to come to the house and give us massages. It was amazing! I put on Adele's album and it was a cool, rainy afternoon. Just perfect!
So that day she was able to show me around where she works, introduce me to some of the people and children she works with, and then we went to help feed the kids in the streets. It was such an amazing experience! It was funny because two of the boys who came for food were crying and some of the guys carrying the food told us they were crying because they were scared of us and had never seen white people before! Crazy!
Here are some pictures of our time at the center.

Later that afternoon we drove to the Valley of the Angels to see the beautiful scenery and do some shopping. We stopped on the side of the road along the way and took these pictures.
That evening was my last night in Honduras. We went to this really fancy restaurant at the top of the mountain with an amazing view of the city. As we were eating, a cloud floated by and blacked out our entire view. It was really cool to see.
I already miss my sister so much, but I'm so happy I was able to spend time with her and see where she lives and works.
I left Honduras and then spent the weekend with my best friend in Naples, FL. Final vacation (and weekly weigh-in) post to come.
