My arrival in El Cuco, El Salvador was a whirlwind. I travelled through the night from the bitter cold of New York and set my purple combat boot-clad feet onto the glittering sand at exactly the moment the sun peeked above the horizon on Tuesday morning. From that point on, it was time to create.
I had been tasked with building out and running the area of Equilibrio called Cosmix, which included a tea room, trading post, and my specialty, a small bar on the beach – a tiki speakeasy, if you will.
I was immediately surrounded by inspiring friends. Old ones, who had conceived this magnificent event over the course of the past year. And new ones, volunteers, who worked tirelessly to make everything come together. This time, Rome almost was built in a day.
