El Salvadorian Adventures Continued….

Everyday has been an adventure since arriving in El Salvador last Friday. Hard to believe a week has flown by.  Adam hooked up with two other Peace Corp Volunteers yesterday and we hiked to a waterfall and then walked all around this very artsy town of Suchitoto.  El Salvador is still a little like the wild west.  You see guys with hand guns, machetes and big shot guns walking around.  There doesn’t seem to be many traffic laws and its every man and woman for him/herself on the roads.  Your dollar does go far here though – so much more cost effective than traveling around Europe.  This first photos is a view from my hotel window. I have wireless and a decent room for $20. Not bad!  Food (and beer) is cheap as well.  Here are some more photos I took the past 2 days.
