So it rained and rained and rained, and the streets flooded higher and higher and higher, but it was not bad enough for private schools to cancel. Which, although we would have loved the extra day off, was a good thing because it meant that it wasn't that bad of a flood. The public schools did close so that the homeless (which there are a lot of) could have a place to sleep.

I don't know if you follow the politics that go on down here, but Honduras' relationship with the USA is deteriorating. On October 9th, the congress here okayed Honduras joining the A.L.B.A., which we are now officially a part of. I'm not totally sure of what the A.L.B.A. does, but I know that it is an alignment between Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. The next countries that are expected to join are Iran and North Korea. Just hearing all of those countries joining together means bad news. My sister who is an international relations expert said that nothing will change now, but the country will probably show some changes in the next 4 to 5 months.
