Hello? Is anybody still out there? I have to give a heartfelt apology for my absence recently, but it came with much work, much travels, and much activity that have left me scrambling to tend to my little blog. However, I am back now, and hopefully for good! The content and intensity of this blog has always fluctuated with my other life plans, so I hope you readers will understand.
However, the fact that this space has been quiet does not mean that I have not been writing, quite the opposite! In fact, I got in touch with Food Tank and have been regularly contributing pieces for them. Here are the ones that have gone online so far:
… in which I wonder about the connection between food prices in Costa Rican supermarkets, the attractiveness of fast food and the rates of obesity in the country.
… where I highlight the increasingly serious environmental issues the pineapple industry in Costa Rica is facing.
… in which I share my visit to an innovative microenterprise at the forefront of Costa Rica’s coffee revolution.
And in other news…. I just published a paper based on my Master’s thesis! It discusses the potential rebound effects of switching to vegetarianism and can be downloaded under this link for free until July 8th! Take advantage!
This much so far; I also just returned from a study trip to Cambodia where we learned a lot about the local land grabbing issues and I am working on a post on that too; plus, an exclusive interview with an amazing coffee business is coming up! Happy reading for now!
