Today I studied Honduras.
I learned that the blue stripes on the Honduran flag stand for the Caribbean sea, and the Pacific Ocean. The stars stand for five Nations of an old Central American Union. Christopher Columbus named Honduras! I learned that the only two seasons that happen in Honduras are the wet season and the dry season. I also learned that Chicle is an ingredient in gum that comes from the Sapota tree.
This is a picture of my uncle who is from the Honduras his family is with him.
