In honor of Gabrielle's birthday, we went to Santa Barbara with some friends from San Pedro for a cake picnic, which is the best kind of picnic. Cecil wanted to show us the Castillo Bogran, which is the ruins of an old president's country home. People in Santa Barbara are either very protective of their local attractions, or no one knows where anything is...we asked several people for directions to the "castle", and also to a lunch place, and only one person knew where anything was. We think he might be the mayor.

Luis Bogran was president of Honduras from 1883 to 1891. He did a lot to improve the country's education system, and his old house in town has since been converted into a public library. No one seems to know why his country home up in the mountains has become a ruin. It is a shame, though, because it is located in a really beautiful spot. I would live there. It isn't/wasn't fortified in any way, so I am unsure why it is referred to as a castle. But it is still lovely, and a recommended spot for a cake picnic (or any kind of picnic) if you find yourself in the Santa Barbara area.
