Living in Honduras, and really any country outsides the states but still being an American inevitable leads to people asking a question about politics. I don´t mind talking about politics I tend to enjoy it but I would like to propose a few laws for any one running in the general election in the United States. I worded that wrong, I would like to propose one thing, and it is really simple. You need to have left the country for at least a month. Seriously. Think the person running for vice presidency for the republican ticket has only left the country to visit the troops. That is ridiculous, I don´t really consider that leaving the country. I could simulate that experience on a trip to what ever desert you pick and throw in a few 20 year olds and there you go. I am just saying why would you elect someone to control the ´superpower´ of the world when they don´t even know what the world is.

Time and Honduras

I think it was about a two months ago I found a wonderful organization online based in Honduras and I was thrilled. Being the person that I am I called them (okay Esposo called them) and asked if they had any job openings, well they said yes and please send them my resume, and a cover letter in English and Spanish. I did.
Then they took me on a four day trip through a national park, which was amazing and I was ever more eager to have a job. Then a few weeks later they asked me for a letter of intent to present the board.. ohh and they needed it in English and Spanish the next day. So I did that.
I am currently waiting and waiting and waiting. I understand that I am american and I have that whole time thing going on but seriously.... this is crazy. it was been a about three weeks and every time we call the office the director is out. I suppose at this point I just want a yes or a no the waiting is killing me.
