Mercer On Mission

"Experience is not what happens to a person...Experience is what a person DOES with what happens to him/her"

Three Hour Tour

Bright and early this morning we headed to the ancient Mayan city of Copan. We were all very surprised to see many Scarlet Macaws flying in the tree tops above our heads. Our tour guide, Eli, told us these are the national birds of Honduras and they are quickly becoming an endangered species. We spent a few hours touring the ruins and then headed back to the hotel. After lunch, we were given the opportunity to explore on our own. Some of us went ziplining, others relaxed by the pool, and a few of us picked up those last minute souvenirs. We have a pretty early departure time from the hotel tomorrow morning (5 am!) but we are very excited to see our friends and family and share our experiences with them. See you all soon!
