Robert Mayer, one of the great democracy writers at Publius Pundit is hitting the road on a tour of Central America and Europe. Here is his itinerary:
I have decided to try the path of Michael Totten sans the Middle East. I will be writing pieces from places like Honduras (one of the darkest corners in Latin America), Catalunya (which voted for large autonomy from Spain), The Netherlands (where the government has collapsed over the Ayaan Hirsi Ali affair), Switzerland (an overlooked and extremely interesting country), and the Czech Republic (home of the original velvet revolution that people talk so much about). Most of my reporting will be from Latin America and eventually Eastern Europe, someday moving on to other regions.
This is my first attempt at web journalism and any support and feedback would be much appreciated. This first piece is on Honduras, and sets the stage for the rest of my pieces on the country. More pieces will be posted every 4-5 days or so. Please take a look. Thanks again!
