Tela, Honduras

Tela is a wonderfull place, it offers some of the best beaches along the blue Caribbean Sea in Honduras. Neighboring Tela, the Garifuna communities of Triunfo de la Cruz and Tornabe offer a window into the Garifuna traditions that are an important part of the Honduran heritage. The Garifuna are ethnically descended from Amerindian and African people, while their language is a dialect of the native Brazilian language family Arawakan. The British colonial administration invented the term Black Carib under which the Garifuna went before they came to the Island of Roatán and eventually the Honduras mainland. Oh, I like it here... but I think it's time for a movin' on.
