Day 4: Sunday

 

Today after a delicious breakfast of coffee cake and hard boiled eggs we split into 2 groups, some attending church service at the Overholts’ and others going to the cathedral for Catholic mass. Mass was well-attended for the first Sunday of Lent.

The cathedral is built of wood and stucco with beautiful wood pillars inside. All the Catholic pigeons showed up for mass today too.

This statue dedicated to José Cecilio del Valle stands in the plaza outside the cathedral. Del Valle was an important Central American politician and philosopher of the 19th century who was born here in Choluteca.

After church we visited a foster home and left supplies and toys for them. We are not allowed to share photos from the foster home but trust me, these kiddos are cute!

We then went to the public beach which was packed. On the way to the beach we passed salt manufacturing and shrimp farms. Angie brought us to a restaurant owned by Osman, who made amazing fried fish  shrimp, and chicken.

David, Kristina, Jessica, and Lauren rode the banana boat

After the beach we headed back to our hotel and had a dinner of Little Caesar’s pizza by the pool. Tomorrow is an early day – breakfast at 6am then heading to the Health Department to see patients.
