Discover Honduras during this month's Holcombe Global Series.

The presentation starts at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, in Holcombe Hall's living room.

Cristian Posadas, an international student from Honduras, will present on his culture, focusing on the country's history, traditions and food.

"It's going to be a fun time learning about the heart of the American continent. There will be food samples, trivia with little prizes and more! Just a warning though...you might fall in love with it," Posadas said.

Honduras is a Central American country bordered by the Caribbean Sea on the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. This country holds the Copán Mayan ruins which have fully intact hieroglyphics, a source of much knowledge of Mayan history today.

Come and discover Honduras. The night will end with tres leches for a birthday celebration as well as samples of catrachas and baleadas, two Honduran dishes.

This event is open to all within the university community. Attendees are encouraged to bring friends and engage with the presenters after the presentation.

Prior countries featured in the Global Series this academic year include India, Japan, Australia, Denmark, Tunisia, Mexico, Russia, Jordan and Moldova.
