HAYWAY Episode 22 – Santa Tecla, El Salvador

If you read the news, you could be mistaken for thinking that if you go to El Salvador, you are going to get murdered. Well, it turns out, that you are more likely to have a great time, see beautiful things and meet lots of interesting people. What a boring non-click baity article that would be.

On this week’s How Are You? Where Are You? podcast we visit El Salvador’s Route of the Flowers, cut open and look inside some unfamiliar fruits and reflect on Guatemala’s horrific landslide tragedy, which struck last week. You can donate to the Red Cross’s efforts in Guatemala to help the victims here: https://www.ammado.com/nonprofit/crg
