Pacific Kippur

They say the Pacific has no memory. As such, this Yom Kippur I'm set to cast my sins into the surf of El Tunco, my favorite beach in El Salvador--nestled between the Pacific waves and the mangrove swamps.

Yom Kippur is a great time to take stock in the time passed.

The last time I was in El Tunco was for my 30th birthday, in the midst of a journey from Los Angeles to Panama.
