wild west (in the north-east)

After I flee the sandfly infested shores of Trujillo, I head, alone again, into La Moskitia. La Moskitia is a huge area in North Eastern Honduras consisting of large areas of uninhabited tropical jungle, savannah and swamp. The wide flung communities are interlinked by canoe transport on a complex system of rivers and lagoons that […]
