Country Day - El Salvador!

We celebrated El Salvador with poet and author Jorge Argueta, who has won the Americas Award for Latin American literature and an award for multicultural literature for juveniles, as well as being a SF Poet Laureate. We enjoyed wonderful food and heard presentations about Argueta's poem, "Water," how to make atol, the volcanoes of El Salvador (K was specific to one particular volcano, "the Lighthouse"), endangered animals, Puente Impossible, a personal poem about identity and El Salvador, population comparisons of different Central American countries, and the geography of El Salvador. Great day, great food, great kids!
