Eduardo Galeano

Dear readers,

At the end of yesterday’s update, I told you of Eduardo Galeano’s passing. Fans of famous people often do really bad drawings of their idols and then send their portraits to their idols. At the Noel Gallagher gig I went to in 2012, there was a man with a Gallagher brother tattoo on each of his shoulder blades. While being a fan of Oasis, I can hereby say to the world that I will NOT be copying this man’s actions.

For Eduardo Galeano, however, an important author in Latin American, writer of Open Veins Of Latin America, I did this bulletin board at work. Something of an obituary. I hope he’s looking down at me with pride. If you’re wondering what QDEP means, it roughly translates as RIP.

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
