Old Carnivals Never Die . . . They Move South!
Today is Children's Day in Honduras, and as part of the celebration, we have a carnival in town.
If you've ever wondered where those carnival rides of your childhood have gone, look no farther . . . they are HERE in Gracias!
Here's a close up of that Ferris Wheel. Makes you want to go for a spin, doesn't it?It is actually a manual ride. A man at the bottom turns it by hand!
So, the ethical dilemma for the international-living mom . . . after dragging your children with you to live in a Third World country, do you let your children create childhood memories on these rides?
