El Niño Hiatus

My most loyal readers have surely realized that I have not posted much lately. Things are hot and dusty here in León right now. Unfortunately, El Niño is walloping Nicaragua and much of Central America. A lot of communities are really hurting because of a prolonged drought that has set in over the last two years. My blogging drought has no relation to El Niño (although, coincidentally, it does coincide with a young German named Nino moving into my house here in León), but instead can be attributed to a computer that has slowed down and some minor blog server problems.


Nino, El Niño

Nevertheless, I am committed to chronicling my final months in Nicaragua, and I have a number of articles ready to go. Consider this past month my El Niño hiatus. I am back!Starting this weekend, I will post them over the next week so you do not get overwhelmed with too many articles at once.

In the meantime, I recommend that you read an article published in a blog by The Diplomat Magazine, written by my site-mate Robert Nelson:

China’s Fantasy Canal Doing Real Damage in Nicaragua

The piece is about the Nicaraguan canal project. I write a satirical piece and get censored by the Volunteer magazine, so I have to publish it on my measly blog; he does the same thing and gets into a world renowned magazine! In all seriousness, having been in León for nearly a year now with Robert, he is a very impressive person for whom I see a bright future.

Finally, if you were wondering, my oft neglected economics blog is not dead yet. I’m working on a series of articles for The Economics of … on international trade and free trade agreements and hope to be getting them up shortly. Fun stuff!
