Honduras set to welcome back tourists

If you're the kind of person who follows political events in Latin America, you're of course aware of the beating that poor little Honduras (a tiny nation of Central America) endured through most of the second half of 2009. Its popular president (Manuel Zelaya) ousted by a military coup; the political uproar that followed; the economy and tourism falling off a cliff; a later attempted intervention by the U.N. and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Zelaya's effort to regain his office; the cessation of protests by Zelaya's political party; new elections and finally, the Jan. 27 inauguration of the new President Porfirio Lobo.
