Returning to El Salvador

The Boston Globe has a moving story today about two sisters who grew up with adoptive parents in the United States after their birth parents were killed in the Salvadoran civil war. Twenty-one years after they left El Salvador, the paper tells the story of their return to El Salvador and the strangeness of meeting family and relatives who live in desperate poverty. Their visit to relatives in Las Flores, El Salvador, speaks volumes about the relationship of North American and Salvadoran societies.
