This marks the conclusion of the OYE Social Media Project. The time spent with OYE in Honduras will stay with me forever; the walk through the market every morning on my way to their office, the interns that I worked with, the morning chorus of roosters, the kabob at Las Tejas restaurant, the conversations with Guillermo Mahchi (an El Progreso artist & prominent member of the community), the baleadas from the place near my hotel, the Columbia grad students, and mostly, the staff and scholars who persevere in sometimes daunting circumstances.
As I went through these photos, I really missed El Progreso and people that I met. Adiós, chicos. I’ll be back. Enjoy the photos! -Richard Lakin
