Tranquility Commences

Life seems about a thousand times better than it did 24 hours ago.

Not to be mistaken, I’m glad that I took the time to undertake an investigation in Tegucigalpa, it bore pretty sweet fruit in the form of myriad data for analysis.  But wow is it nice to be out of that noisy, smoggy, noisy, bustling, noisy noisy city and into the tranquil Caribbean.

I’m not on my nice quiet Cay yet, but just now waiting for a skiff to take me there from Utila proper, still plagued by the sounds of traffic which are my cognitive bane; in two or so hours however, I’ll be submerged in tranquility, the perfect environs for writing my biggest academic undertaking so far.

With research mostly completed, the days will be mostly filled with writing, broken up sporadically by dives under the bluest and most life-filled part of the Atlantic ocean, with some snorkeling and kayaking thrown in for good measure.  I’m told there’s internets to be found even out on the Cays now, so I should be able to keep in touch.

Love in Marley.

Tegus Day Ten: Chao Ruido, Hola Olas.

This is probably going to be my last day in Tegucigalpa.

This week I finished up all the content analysis that I need to do, interviewed a bunch of people including the print media I’m analyzing, a radio host who was suppressed during the conflict, a human rights NGO and some media experts and analysts.  A lot of this I did with a brutal cold that I think grabbed a hold of my immune system after it was weakened by being around so much dust in the archives.

So now I’m off to the islands to write my thesis, in the most tranquil environment I have access to, and dive as often as I can to break up the work a bit.  I’ll be staying at Hotel Kayla and the Captain Morgan dive team on the Jewel Cay.
