Lago de Yojoa, quite the peaceful place

IMG_1985Leaving from Tegucigalpa I made my way to the biggest lake in Honduras, Lago de Yojoa, to get some fresh air and stay at a microbrewery owned by American that supposedly whipped up a fine brew. The beer wasn't that good, quite pricey, and the hostel not that well-located or nice, but strolling around the area was a treat. I was introduced to the kindness of Hondurans when, after getting off of the bus that left me about 4 km to walk to the hostel, I was picked up my a man and his son in a truck who let me ride in the back. I wasn't even hitchhiking, they just saw me walking and picked me up without a second thought (the reflection picture below is from the back of their truck). I wasn't even against walking since 4 km wasn't that far and I had been sitting on buses all day, but I couldn't complain about a free ride right to the place I was staying. After arriving, I wandered over to a coffee plantation with a strangely beautiful blue pool, and then over towards the lake and a river that came off of it. Pictures are below.
