The Big Move by Carl Smith-Hunnicutt

translation services usa
After being up in Yaruca, about 45 minutes away from El Pital, for a little over a week, I am feeling a bit more comfortable. I knew moving from El Pital would be both hard and exciting but I certainly miss my friends and family from El Pital. My new family here is great. My dad is a very outspoken member of the Liberalies party, certainly the minority affiliation of the valley which is dominated by Nationalists. Our political ideologies are pretty similar so it has been interesting to hear a Hondurans prospective on US, international and Central American politics.
Yaruca is very different from El Pital in many ways. Yaruca appears to have a little bit higher standard of living and I have heard that many Yarucans have family that work in the United States and send money back. The higher perceived Socio-Economic Status has made for an interesting transition to more contemporary conveniences that almost seem like a bridge between El Pital and the US. My family still has an adobe, wood burning stove that are very common in El Pital but also has a 4 burner gas stove that you
would find in the US. They have bucket showers and toilets mixed with flush toilets and shower heads.
Despite some of these differences, the people in both places have been more than accommodating and welcoming to me and I will forever be grateful for their hospitality.
