Every morning, my alarm includes a mix of barking dogs, blasting Reggaton music and of course, squawking chickens. Where I currently live, the Jewish News doesn’t really circulate (nor does the New York Times). Actually, there are no Jews within 60 miles of my house. 

After living in El Salvador for more than a year and a half, I have realized there are only so many opportunities to be Jewish in a foreign country. I did realize, more or less, that in deciding to apply for the Peace Corps, my Jewish experiences from back home in the great U.S. of A. would be quite limited.
