Glitter: My Dad & Pepe the Goose

Volcán Santa Ana

Volcán Santa Ana

High: My mom, dad, and little sister came to visit!  We climbed the tallest volcano in El Salvador, Volcán Santa Ana, went to the beach, and they came to my site to feel the true heat of Salvadoran summer in the East.

Low:  On the work front, projects are moving slowly and things that worked in the past are falling through.  April will have to turn things around!

Glitter:  My dad befriended a goose named Pepe when we stopped on the side of the road to rescue some ducklings who had fallen into a gutter.  He held him and even cuddled with him!
