Couple of things from our respective journalists down in Central America.
- Check out Andrea Canales' stuff at Goal.com. Some good stuff from a wealth of different players including Jozy Altidore, Heath Pearce and Jonathan Spector.
- Paul Oberjuerge has some stuff over on his blog too. He's writing for the New York Times. He writes about the country of El Salvador itself. I've never been there myself but I always kind of thought it was the way he described it.
It’s like Mexico. Except moreso. A bit poorer, a little more ramshackle, a tad more random/ad hoc/chaotic. If you wonder where those rickety buses go when Mexico decides they’re too far gone? To El Salvador, apparently. This is a country where every bus is a 30-year-old, soot-belching monstrosity, often with someone hanging out the front door.
