Edward Welham

Ed lived and worked in El Salvador before joining the company in 2006. His master’s in Latin American Politics fed his fascination with the social movements of Central America while he also loves the area for the vibrancy of its people, places and music.


Edward Welham

Ed lived and worked as a teacher in El Salvador before joining the company in 2006, he graduated in Political Science with a master's degree in Latin American Politics. This academic background has given him a fascination with the social movements of Central America, whose once-turbulent history has seen enormous political conflict as well as modern success stories. But his interest is not just intellectual: Ed also loves the area for the vibrancy of its people, places and music. 

Ed’s favourite travel memory is of the Independence Day celebrations in El Salvador, which featured nocturnal parades of music, dance and costume, fireworks and a riot of colour and rhythm.

My favourite place in Latin America

When I first visited El Salvador I was blown away by the people, who were universally kind, friendly and astonishingly resilient. I ended up staying for five months and have returned on many subsequent occasions, including meeting my wife there and buying a house in the colonial town of Suchitoto.
