It's Independence Day!

Hounduras gained independence from Spain on September 15, 1821. Today is a national holiday and everyone has off from work. My plans of going to the beach were trumped by the planning and grading I have to do, but it has been nice to be at home getting things done. Here, independence day is not celebrated with fireworks, but there are parades all day throughout the city.
