Crossing Continents – A Death in Honduras

Hi all

Two friends of mine, Chris Kentish and Nigel Simons, pointed out a programme on Radio 4 today that was all about Honduras. It starts by talking about the free funeral service for the poor set up by the Mayor of Tegucigalpa. It then talks about the political problems, problems with gangs, the police and violence. It’s a sharp reminder about my experiences there, and hopefully, in August, I’ll be back.

Here is a copy of it on Iplayer. I’m not sure if it can be heard by people in other parts of the world. I hope it can. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01gvthm.

About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
