san salvador, el salvador, san salvador volcano, foreign service, expat lifeIt’s been one year since we moved to El Salvador (technically, it’s been a year and two days). And what a year it’s been.I was having trouble thinking about what to write; after all, how do you sum up a year — no matter where you’re living and what you’re doing but especially a year filled with so many changes and new experiences?
