Welcome to my Blogicito — spanglish for 'little blog'. I am a US expatriate who has been living here in La Ceiba, Honduras, with my Catracho husband since 2001 and blogging about Honduras and my expatriate life since 2006.
The Blogicito includes a wide variety of topics from everyday life to cultural differences to Honduran politics and corruption. One way to find what you are looking for is to browse the 'Topics' list or the monthly lists of articles under 'La Gringa's archives' below. Looking for something more specific? Use the search box at the upper left (for complete articles) or the Google blog search below (for a list of summaries — usually more manageable).
Like most bloggers, reader feedback helps to inspire me. I enjoy reading your comments.
This is the best place to get info about living in Honduras!
Thank you all for your comments, messages, prayers, well-wishes, and inspiration. It's comments like these that keep me blogging!
