Quick update from the U.S. (EDF)

El Salvador had their national presidential election on Sunday, and the leftist candidate, Funes won!  

KRF and I had a feeling the right-wing party (ARENA) and their candidate, Avila, would win- that party has been in power for a loooong time (I think 16 or so years), and they had canvassed the entire capital city, and the countryside as well, with ads, slogans, and their colors.

Funes and the leftist party (FMLN) represent change; Funes had been compared to Obama, so I think it is exciting (though we did have many conversations with more conservative El Salvadorians, who I'm sure are disappointed).  Way to take on ARENA!
