Weekend trip to Gracias Lempira and Copán Ruinas.

This past weekend Nick and I took a trip to two places: Gracias Lempira and Copán. In Gracias we staid the night so we could see the natural hot springs there. The town was also having a fundraiser for the local woman's organization and a local hospital. We talked with a few of the locals while eating amazing pupusas for dinner.

The next day we headed to Copán. Copan is home of to the country's most extensive Mayan Ruins. We spent Saturday afternoon exploring all the ruins. I've included pictures from both stops.
