Latin America is riddled with crime, and no place is more violent than Honduras. It has just 8 million people, but with as many as 20 people killed there every day, it now has the highest murder rate in the world.

OMG - what a terrible "Title" to hold, awfully scary...and I wanted to go there at some point. I am rethinking everything about going to South America, especially Central America. Sad, because it has so much beauty and unique animal life in the world.

Noted, intend to reread. Poor Honduras; makes our gun control issues pale (a little).
