US v Honduras: Welcome to the end of the world.

The US continues its World Cup qualifying with a trip to Honduras today at 4 p.m. Lest you think this is just a friendly competition, oh no, it's not.  San Pedro Sula has been named the most violent city in the world edging out Juarez.

Check the article below, it's a compelling read about life in the violent city in the world and the US attempt to gain valuable qualifying points there. Here are some highlights:

  • Journalists are advised not to leave the hotel because they will be mugged and if mugged, just allow the mugging to occur to lessen the chances of a weapon being used against you.
  • Armed motorcade is the only way to travel.
  • A coup in 2009 destabilized the country. A COUP!
  • The Honduran government declared today a National Holiday so everyone in Honduras is enjoying a day off. Suck it 'Merica.
