This is the 2000th time I have written a post on Tim's El Salvador Blog since I started the blog back in November 2004. What started as just a way to educate myself about current events and politics in El Salvador has lasted much longer than I ever would have thought.
I want to express my sincere thanks to all of you who have helped me along the way with insights into El Salvador, with article ideas, and with your words of appreciation.
From Salvadoran food to continued impunity for human rights violations in the civil war, from the historic victory of Mauricio Funes in 2009 to the complexity of the gang truce, and from the memory of Oscar Romero to wonderful tourist sites in El Salvador, I've had the opportunity to share with you many of things which fascinate me about El Salvador.
I'm looking forward to the next thousand posts, especially as I start the coverage of the three way presidential election in 2014.
