It was day One in Honduras. A friend named Sara picked us up at the Airport in her SUV in  Tegucigalapa, the countries capital. We were on our way to the small town of La Esperanza, which boasts the coolest climate in the country. La Esperanza is on the route between Tegucigalpa and Western Honduras making it an ideal point for a stop-over on our travel to Roatan. It’s also a great place to absorb traditional Lenca culture.

armadilloHalfway through our trip Sara noticed a couple of guys holding up an animal that until this day, we were not familiar with. It was an armadillo. We soon found out that they were selling this armadillo for food. After some serious roadside negotiations, Sara settled on a price of $15 USD. We chucked the leathery armoured mammal in a bag and threw it in the back seat.  Boy was I excited! I had never  imagined eating Armadillo before and soon enough, I’d be cooking it up in a tasty stew. Sara had a different agenda in mind, and considering she paid for it, I was expected to respect it.
