When we were denied bus service from Honduras for this coming Sunday, I decided to do some looking into it. The “fijese” the kindly bus lady gave was that it was election Sunday. Curious. My Google search revealed that general elections in Honduras are held at the end of November (this year specifically on the 29th). Curiously frustrating. We really needed to get back on Sunday. After a day of searching from here in Guatemala, a country that shares a border with Honduras, these have been the first and only articles I have been able to find that explain what the big ruckus is about:
Still curious. Still frustrating. And concerning…obviously enough so to cause Hedman Alas to cancel bus services for that day. And even more so, begging this question in my mind…does a country have to possess either oil or nuclear capabilities to have its crisis noticed?
