El Salvador 2013

It's been almost two years since I've written in my blog. After leaving El Salvador in December of 2011, I had a very difficult time adjusting back to life in the US and a hard time blogging. There was a lot I wanted to write about, but it never got done. But now I have another chance. I'm back in El Salvador with two other women from my church, Maggie and Michelle. We'll be here for one week in Berlin, Usulután, El Salvador. I'll be staying an extra week to spend some time with friends I made during my year here in 2011. I'm sure we'll have many wonderful experiences and adventures during our time here.

You're sending radio signals, as I like to say to people sometimes. I happened to think about you this morning, and said let's go to her Blog if there is anything new. And wouldn't you know it? There you are! Right in El Salvador, right now. Fantastic, I am so happy you made it back there and get to see your friends again. I'll go check out your other posts. :-)
