Tetelque

Tetelque is that weird feeling between your tongue and your teeth when you eat unripe fruit or spinach. It's a cool Salvadoran word, but it has absolutely nothing to do with this blog, other than the occasional picture of mamones, which kind of invoke the feeling of tetelque.

My name is Christina. I live in El Salvador. (It's kind of a long story.) I'll probably write about that a lot. This blog was originally meant for my family in the States, so they could keep track of my adventures over here, but I'm pretty sure they've never read it. So instead, I dedicate this to you, whoever you may be.
