Honduras

Climate The climate in Honduras depends on the elevation. The coastal areas are usually warmer and more humid. Next central region has a pleasant climate almost year-round. Then south is warmer and drier than the rest of the country. Those climates are becuase of the seasons which are rainy and dry.

Honduras Greetings Everyday I would greet routinely begin conversations with a friendly "Buenos dias" (good day). Also when sitting down to a meal with others, I will say "Buen provecho" (may it do you good!) For respect, I would give professionals sspecial tittles. For example: Professor Nunezand for non-professionals senor or senorita. Politness and gestures are important for greetings.

Day of The ChildDay of The Child is myfavorite holiday to celebrate. During this holiday all the children get to recieve sweets and gifts at school from the teachers and staffs. Also the adults congratulate the children when passing them on the street.

My Parents' Jobs My mom would raise shrimp or grow coffee, cotton, or sugar. Then my dad would work in a small factory or buisness.

A Different Life My life, growing up in Honduras would be different compared to now because everyday I would have to wake up in a poor slum or a small house made of dry mud and straw, called a "adobe". Also my life would have more responsibility because I would have to get up at 5 a.m. to take care of younger kids, feed animals, and do other chores.
