Dear all,

I am currently ill with some sort of virus, which has made every joint of my body extremely achy, given me a bad headache and a nasty sore throat. I have been told by the doctor at work that it is an infection, although the symptoms are very similar to dengue, which is what my housemate Nacho has had recently. His girlfriend Mariela has brought home her pet, Clotty, a three year old terrapin/turtle (I don’t know which, nor do I know her Latin name, but she has a lovely shade of orange) that hides within the plants and eats fruit and chicken all day. Lovely little thing, although she has the claws of a velociraptor. I found out when I picked her up. I don’t know if she’s moody or shy, but she’s the new guest in the house. My housemates asked if I could write a blog about her, but she doesn’t do much and I don’t think she would grab your attention, so I might give Clotty Watch a miss for now.


Now, for the reason that you might have come to my blog, my fourth article for ESPN.


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
