A blog post on how to boost your energy levels when you're following a ketogenic diet, for an e-commerce client in the food supplements niche.

1. Family values
Family is the most important thing in the world for most Colombians. It’s normal to see a man walking down the street with his arm around his mother. In turn, mothers will spoil the...
I’m so pleased that a piece I wrote about one of my everyday experiences in Bogotá (namely sitting in traffic!) was accepted for inclusion in an anthology, which includes work by a number of writers with a connection to Colombia, in memory of the great Gabriel García Marquez, who passed away one year ago on 17th April 2014. My piece considers themes associated with Gabo and his life and work, as well as my own experience and feelings about life in Bogotá as an outsider.
