It’s a certain type of person who wants to visit the wettest place on earth. Maybe the Pacific Northwest was just a bit too arid for their liking. Or maybe a week-long trip to the Atacama left their skin drier than… well, the Atacama.
I think I can see tears in her eyes she pulls out the Spanish salami. In Ellie Scaffa’s own words:

This was the holiday I missed the most when I lived in China: my friends and I would pool together over $100 to buy a small, uncooked turkey.
