I've learned in Honduras that it's best to just go with the flow... Or sometimes the lack of flow.
This morning while I was in the middle of washing my hair in the shower, the water suddenly turned off! I waited a few seconds to see if it would restart, and when it didn't, it struck me that I was standing in the shower with shampoo in my hair and no water. I just laughed. What else was I supposed to do? So, I got out, used a tiny bit of my drinking water to get the excess suds out, and now I'm sitting on my bed in a towel waiting for the water to come on again so that I can finish what I started. (Thankfully today is Sunday, so I'm in no rush to go anywhere.) I've learned that there is really no reason to stress the things I can't control, and- if possible- I try to enjoy the unexpected!
So, long story short, things don't always go exactly as planned in Honduras, but I'm learning how to live in spite of that, and sometimes very good things come of it!
