Locovores Be Damned, Wine Drinking in Honduras

 Note: A recent two-week sojourn in Honduras gave me a chance to think - about wine, about technology, about stuff.  In a sensory evaluation class a few years ago, the teacher said, only somewhat faciciously, that the best wine pairing for Thai food is a cold beer. Ditto for almost any cusine of Honduras.    In April it is so hot that you either swim or walk very, very slowly. Bananas, pineapples and coconuts grow in your garden and rum is cheap and plentiful.    So why would anyone reach for a glass of wine when locovore logic would lean toward a fruity rum drink?  I dunno, but I guess I passed the wino test, because after a week I really did yearn for a glass of wine.  At the lovely La Casa de Copan B&B, Sid, our guide and friend, brought us Chilean Savignon Blanc (Verremonte?)  on hot afternoons. It was the perfect thing to drink while swinging softly in a Honduran hammock.
