Honduras yahoo group looks good

I've been a member of the yahoo group honduras_living for a few months, just glancing over the posts I receive in the daily digest.  It seems like a fairly realistic group.  Today I was reading an interesting message by one of their members comparing their group to a pressy article  they had recently read.

Quoted in their post from the pressy article "Your safety is not so much a concern as it is almost guaranteed. Your safety is not so much a concern as it is almost guaranteed. The island of Roatan was once under British rule and many island natives speak English. Unlike some other Latin American countries where safety is of high concern, the Honduran government has taken extra precautions in recent years to keep visitors and newcomers safe."

From their post: "After reading that and after getting over my laughing fit, it is just goes to show you what we've all been saying - don't believe everything you read! Good thing we have this group for balance but the downside is that not enough people know about us! --Guanaja Sharon"

Well, one reason people don't know about their group is because it's a yahoo group with message-reading restricted based on membership (hence their content does not appear in search engines).  In any case, here I'll do my part to spread the word.  If you are in Honduras, you certainly should be reading the daily digests from that yahoo group.

Honduras Living Yahoo Group

I'm a member of HL and appreciate your mention of us, within this forum. It's been a great service, contact group, information centre as well as just plain fun given the diversity of the members.

My first experience was with finding an emergency dentist in La Ceiba, and received an answer with name, phone, address and bilingual status within minutes!

The group has helped travellers with hotels, provided information concerning issues such as residency, buying or building a home (great section on solar heating!), hiring workers and the list is endless.

Most definately worth checking out for yourself!
