A delegation from El Salvador came to visit. “You should come over to El Salvador!” they say. “You’ll love it!”
“I’ve heard it’s dangerous,” I say.
“Oh no, not at all! We rent a whole hotel for the people we bring over, and then they stay at the hotel the whole time! They never have to leave it until it’s time to go home!”

What’s your opinion on Bukele? He seems to be trying new things, which can be somewhat refreshing.
I like him. He’s young, energetic, and, what’s most important, he has no connection to the civil war-era antagonisms. El Salvador needs to move on from endlessly replaying the civil war. It serves no purpose to get stuck in the past, and Bukele is very symptomatic of the younger generation being done with the civil war.
