El Salvador Nighto Three-o

We got shot in the dark in El Salvador.  There were guns. For real! Kind of! The night came arrived with the surf and sunset and turned to scores and then storms-well not really.  The score of the Jets/Patriots futbal playoff game was 28-21. With 1 minute and 20 seconds left – power out. What? Yup. No tv. No lights. No shower. No food. No bueno. What […]


El Salvador dia tres

Day three in El Salvador, and workday two, is best described by my favorite Latin musician and numero uno girl crush – Shakira.

Chelsey and I had […]

We passed cows and pigs and little huts that seemed like we […]

Stop 1 – coconut water! Real coconut water with chunks of the coconut “meat.” No, Martin, that’s what they call it. Save the penis joke. […]

Why am I going to El Salvador? Pete Huyck introduced me to OneKidOneWorld.
