Reading about El Salvador
This is a good time to pick up something to familiarize yourself a little about El Salvador. I am going to start reading Bitter Grounds by Sandra Benitez. The story starts in 1932, a pivotal time in Salvadoran history. I'm reading this book because it is recommended on Tim's Blog and it covers a time period that I don't know much about.
In this post, I am sharing a great blog on everything Salvadoran with you - Tim's Blog. I strongly suggest, as part of your preparation for this year's trip that you start reading his posts whenever they come out. He covers a wide range of topics including current affairs, politics, lifestyle and Salvadoran history. He introduces his readers to new blogs about El Salvador on a regular basis.
Tim also has a great collection of books and resources for those interested in El Salvador. It is a list that grows as he receives new recommendations from his readers. You can find this valuable post right here.
What preparation will you be doing? Does anything appeal from Tim's list?
