Yesterday we went shopping in Tegucigalpa for some groceries and supplies for our new house. Tegucigalpa is the capitol of Honduras and has about 1 million people crammed into it. This was our opportunity to explore the city a little.

PK checks the list to see if crazy novelty neck ties are on it... they aren't.

CT is very excited to find the fans.
