Something the Salvadorians have no experience with is a gringo with long hair. The first question ‘Does 5 sound good?’. Confused I turned around and see my hairdresser holding an electric shaver with a 5cm mask. Shocked and worried about my poor pelo I ask her if she could cut with scissors, and then only half a thumb length if possible. Here is where I made the big mistake; never go to a Salvadorian hairdresser and ask her to cut your, back then, long hair a little shorter. Most people run around with pelong (very short hair) and so she had no experience whatsoever. I would describe my hair as a muschroom with some stylish corners. I might just get pelong as well. Its worth a try, and its something they seem able to handle well here!

(Its nothing personal Ms. Hairdresser!)

In memory of my lovely hair, RIP.
