Back from a week in the country

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Last Sunday we took a work team out to the very rural area of Honduras to build a church building. Rural means no flush toilets, cold showers (both flashlight only), meals cooked over wood fires, electricity for power tools generated by a gas generator...

Meals in the country are always very heavy carb with little or no protein. I give myself brownie points for asking the hostess to give me very small portions of rice and then leaving half of that on the plate. Only one tortilla per meal, when served 4 or 5, saying no thank you to the white bread that was served. Over all it was more carbs than I would've liked, but I did have to eat something! Plus the extra calories burned by working on the building balanced it out.

It was a fun week, and I'm proud to say I'm learning that it is ok to tell our hostess "no thanks, it does me harm"
