My favorite things about Honduras

Seeing the mountains every day. And not seeing the mountains when the clouds cover them, called a 'cloud forest.'

No junk mail (because there is virtually no mail period). We do have a mailbox for those months when we write a check and receive a bank statement and once a year when Uncle Sam finds me and sends me those tax forms.

No telephone solicitations (partly because we can't even get a telephone line).

No cold weather (although there are a few days each year that feel cold − even though it might still be in the 60's).

Mussaenda philippica 'Aurorae' blooms year round

Seeing flowers blooming every day.

No gripey neighbors complaining about my compost or dogs or chickens and no laws against them.

No $100 visits to the doctor plus $100 blood tests plus $100 x-rays to have the doctor write a prescription for a drug that you knew you needed before you went to the doctor.

Things can be economically repaired here rather than thrown away (kitchen appliances, TVs, shoes, clothes, cars, books, etc.).
