Happy Birthday sis, and Honduras News (from Washington Post)

Hi all

I finished the last update talking about books. I’m going to start this update by asking if anyone knows any great novels about a kidnapping, because I’m looking to write a novel on that very matter. Strange, but I need inspiration and information on the topic.

I am now going to include a couple of stories, published in the Washington Post, about Honduras. The first one is about Tegucigalpa. It describes the situation many people are living in at this moment in time, about keeping your head low, taxi drivers paying impuesto de guerra etc. I felt it was a slightly scare-mongering report on the situation here, not great for the tourist guide, but there you go. http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/ap-honduras-correspondent-chronicles-stories-of-violence-every-day-everywhere-from-everyone/2012/12/30/33dc1554-5296-11e2-abc4-3d33329b6128_story.html

The second report is about the Honduran Ambassador Carlos Humberto Rodríguez Andino, in Colombia, who seemed to have had a lively Christmas party, which involved computers being nicked and two prostitutes, all in the name of the birth of God’s Holy Son, Jesus. Maybe I should write a scandalous little erotic thriller about the saucy goings on in this office party. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/the_americas/colombia-police-probe-report-computers-stolen-during-party-at-honduran-embassy/2013/01/04/ef6982ae-56db-11e2-8a12-5dfdfa9ea795_story.html

My sister’s birthday was on Thursday so I thought I would celebrate it for her by playing her favourite song ever. My sister, Elizabeth Layla Rogers, has been very busy planning her wedding, so she should now chill out by listening to, no other than, the BACKSTREET BOYS!!! Plus, she was born in the year which bears the same name of the book I’m reading, 1984.

I also heard that Britain is in a triple dip recession. To celebrate it, why don’t I include a picture which I found on Facebook portraying a Tory politician doing what they do best: hypocrisy!

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
