Central America is full of wonderful places to visit. I have traveled through Guatemala, Belize, México, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and of course most extensively in Honduras. The culture of my mixed native heritage is so awesome I am continuously filled with pride at my indigenous brethren who have not only survived the European invasion, and the subsequent 300 years of enslavement, ethnic cleansing, and 200 years of the more modern economic oppression of my people, but they are thriving. There is moreover an increasing change in the wind. I see it every day in the Lenca children I teach and mentor. They are vibrant, intelligent and full of energy and they crave education. Happy Samhain to everyone on this 31st of October; or as my late irreverent father used to say: Happy Jala Mel Weenie!
