Nobody wanted to show their faces to the camera. The illegal goods in the hands might get them a criminal record was their fear. Exotic lizards were sold to motorists at the roadside by these youngsters in Honduras. May be you might be quick enough to condemn what they do. But try to see the reality of things! When food is a scarcity and you have to put up a fight for survival, saving wild life isn't on the top of your agenda.
As I rode along those rural areas of Honduras, kids stood at the road side and stretched their hands out, begging gesturing that they are hungry. I began to ask myself, is it necessary to burn so much fuel and ride around the world when so many kids are left out there for begging?
