On Monday we leave for a two week tour through Guatemala and Honduras, sponsored by the U.S. State Dept. and the consulates of those countries, to spread New Orleans' black Mardi Gras culture to Central America. We also look forward to connecting with artists and musicians of the Mayan and Garifuna cultures and digging the people, sights and nature of Central America, where none of us has been before.
I plan on
keeping this journal (I can't bring myself to call it a blog) for the
length of the tour, and hopefully include photos, music and video along
the way. If I fail to keep it up, please don't hold it against me. We
are from New Orleans, and plan to have our fun. Royce
