Vegetables and Commodities

Rejecting Tradition, Kids Leaving Family Farms Behind from The Tico Times.

Vegging Out Gets Easier in Costa Rica from The Tico Times.

Those are my last two stories that will come out before I leave Costa Rica. I've got a couple of Hotel Reviews and other things like that in the oven. If I can work it out, I'm going to write an article about Mormon anti-fascists in Honduras which I'll try to pitch to someone like The Mormon Worker.

Merry Christmas, dudes.

Wrasslin' with Communists

It's been a while since I've posted anything, but here are a few stories I've been working on. My time here at The Tico Times ends in a week and a half, but the articles will continue. I hope to go back to SLUG, and I've also landed a gig with The Daily Herald in Provo. Things are looking good. Love, love, love.

Get Ready to Rumble: WWE Takes on Costa Rica from ticotimes.net. I originally had mentioned the band Sevendust in the opening, but it got edited out.

Govt Looks for Quick Coffee Fix from The Tico Times.

Coffee Farmers Struggling, but Prices are High from The Tico Times.

Surfing the Concrete Wave in Costa Rica from The Tico Times.

A Havana Affair: Four Days in Cuba's Capital from The Tico Times. The photos for this story are the first I've ever had published. Take THAT, snooty aspiring photojournalists!
