I’m Going To El Salvador!

It’s true, it’s true!  I am.  For a week.  With a humanitarian organization I deeply and wholeheartedly admire called Unbound.  And I just wrote out a lovely introductory post to tell you all about it, and the country, and their national food (papusas!), and the things we’re going to...

TGIF, friends.

Why I Don’t Use The Term “Food P–n”
