palacios, on the western end of la mosquitia, is the landing strip and eco-lodging headquarters of this underdeveloped territory.
near palacios, is batalla, a garifuna village.
at first i caught a hostile air, guys with guns in boats near palacios, and strangers not too willing to talk. but once i discovered the village dancing, and shook my hips along with some "punta," there was no fear.
near batalla is pueblo nuevo. there, i ran into some kids in an unconstructed church, scrawny limbs drumming and dancing up a storm.
