Two more things I found interesting about Honduras was that Honduras was originally neutral during World War II but after the bombing of pearl harbor they joined the side of the allies. They declared war on Japan, Germany and Italy. They never sent troops into help but they provided raw materials that were desperately needed. Lastly Hondurians get the nickname Catrachos/Catrachas after a famous Honduran general, Florencio Xatruch. This name is meant to be taken as a compliment.
