Hollow Earth Theory

The Hollow Earth Hypothesis says that the planet Earth is hollow and powered by an interior sun 1000 km (600 miles) across that provides light to an advanced inner-Earth civilization or maybe prehistoric creatures. Openings to the inner earth are thought to be in either poles, but can also be in other places around the world like Peru, Tibet, or Mount Shasta, in California.  The Nazi era Thule Society spoke a lot about Tibetan myths of openings into the Earth. There is even a theory that Hitler ordered a research journey for such an opening in Antarctica. During the Nuremberg Trials, Admiral Dönitz spoke of "an invisible fortification, in midst of the eternal ice." perhaps the real location where Hitler fled? Some believe UFOs actually come from within the Earth, maybe piloted by descendants of Atlantians. The Hollow Earth hypothesis has long been contradicted by overwhelming observational Evidence, as well as by the modern understanding of planet formation but the possibility is still out there.

El Salvador

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. It borders the Pacific Ocean, between Guatemala and Honduras, and is where My Parents are from. There was a twelve year civil war in the eighties and early ninties between the conservative US backed government and leftist gorilla Rebels which left over 75,000 dead. Today, crime runs rampant and El Salvador is known as one of the most dangerous places to visit. It is also one of the most beautiful, in my opinion. troplical rainforests, volcanoes, and friendly people in old cities, populate the land. And the food, holy shit the food, soo good. Panes con chumpe, pupusas, yuca, tamales, all worth the trip.
(this is a good essay on the sweatshops found in El Salvador.)
