I love that my friends share my love for Tegus. As I mentioned in earlier posts, with Tegus, its the small things... the friendly people, the little places that have a story, the whole-in-the-wall places to eat, buildings with history that nobody seems to notice.
I might be biased, because after all, Tegus is where my heart is, it is my home.
And in this post, I must share a little of the nice things my friends see in Tegus.
There's a quote that says something about beauty being in the beholder's eye. You can see that in Ash's pictures (Ash is here <--- to the left). He hasn't lived in Tegus for long, but in his time here, he's captured not only a place in our hearts but amazing images of this little city. I am truly a fan of his pics, but the ones of Tegus are just impressive.
You can check them out in the "I Heart Tegus" tab in this blog... or just click here I <3 a="a" tegus="tegus">3>
Dani, on the other hand, has this amazing project going on. She calls it "1578" which is the year Tegucigalpa was founded. It is a movement that seeks to promote a positive image of Tegus. You often listen to the people who live here (or Capitalinos) saying: "Ughh, there's nothing to do here!". Well, Dani and her project believe that is not true, so she gets collaborates with creative, interesting people, NGOs, cultural organizations, etc. and shows us we are wrong. There are choices, there are places, there are things going on. You can check it out on facebook: Facelifting the image of Tegus: 1578
Beautiful Kris does her part too! Artist and dear friend, Kris has a mild addiction to Pinterest. She has the most random, interesting boards out there...and today I just saw she posted a board about Vintage Tegus! It would be a crime if I didn't share it with you! You are just a click away from going to a retro Tegus. Enjoy!

So these are a few of the ways my friends show Tegus their love. I really do hope this increases your interest in it.
I hope you enjoy!
