HONDURAS - SAN PEDRO SULA

Postcard sent by Jose Garcia. Our first swap. Thanks a lot!
We can see San Pedro Sula is a city in Honduras. It is located in the northwest corner of the country, in the Valle de Sula (Sula Valley).
This cathedral is worth peeking into. Occupying almost a full city block, it has high, pale-yellow walls and pillars, and an even higher central cupola. The walls are laden with paintings of the saints and other Catholic imagery and hand-carved wooden statues of the same. Like so many huge urban cathedrals in Latin America, this one offers instant respite from the hustle and bustle on the street.
