Graham finds his way through Belize, Guatemala and El Salvador, only needing a police escort once. Brainrotting ep. 8
Graham stops in El Mozote, El Salvador, the site of the December 11th, 1981 massacre. He takes a moment to remind us that though El Salvador’s civil war was a tumultuous and violent part of its history, the genocide should not become a label for the whole country. Many places around the world are labeled dangerous by rumor, fear-generating news reports or governments’ travel advisories. Once the traveler (who takes the chance) arrives in these places, he/she often finds some of the most generous and open-hearted locals they have ever met.
