What A Souper Wife!!

Hannah has been holding up well under the conditions of things. Probably the biggest struggle has been some of the food. The last time we were in Honduras we had a lot of good food, however this time, the cook has a little bit of a different taste. Our first Sunday here, we had a soup called " Mondongo ". We aren´t totally sure but we think part of the ingredients was cow stomach. It was like globs of rubber. The soup she is eating in the picture she actually liked and it was one of the better meals.

She is still struggling with morning sickness but all in all she is doing great. She loves the people, some have even asked her if she was a Honduran. She looks like a Honduran and before long she will even talk like a Honduran. She is studying hard and little by little she is learning more and more Spanish. What a souper wife!
