One thought on “About me”

  1. Dr. Wilm,
    I am a journalism student at Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona USA. I am doing a story on the Nicaraguan Canal project and the economic and national security impacts it may have on the region and the US. I read and enjoyed your book “Nicaragua, Back from the Dead?” and was hoping I might be able to interview you for my story. While an in-person interview will likely be impossible (unless you find yourself in Phoenix AZ), we could speak on the phone or via Skype or even communicate through email. I will be traveling to Nicaragua from the 5th – 13th of March this year and am also interested in interviewing people there. Along with my interest in interviewing you, I would greatly appreciate anyone you could recommend I speak with in Nicaragua. I look forward to hearing from you, and appreciate any assistance you may be able to offer.
