why is nobody here?

When you read the guide books about El Salvador they fill you with worry about gun crime, travelling at night, muggings, murders and all sorts of other baddies that hang around in dark corners. They tell you to be careful when in the countryside and not to flash expensive pieces of camera equipment around. They tell you to be careful on buses and to wear body armour.
To be honest we were a bit worried about crossing the border but we were always going to do it. You cant visit Central America and miss out just one country.
And here is our story about El Salvador:
The bus from Guatemala took 12hours instead of 6.
We went to a food fair in Juayua and I lost Ross to football.
We found a snake.
...and a Chameleon
We saw Jesus´funeral (?)
We went to a waterfall
...and I made friends with a cute bug.
We found a lot of art in Ataco.
We walked Routa des Flores and found this.
Then we went to Santa Ana and took a day trip to this lake which is the crater of a volcano.
We took this bus there:
The third town we stayed in was La Palma. It has a lot of art too.
...and very big trucks.
...and elections are on sunday so we´re going to Honduras in an hour.
Yesterday we went up the highest mountain of El Salvador. 2730m in 1 and a half hour.
There´s an antenna on the top and some REALLY scary dogs to guard it.
Btw, did you know where cashew nuts come from? The top of this fruit!
And I found a seed and made some art. Ross thought it looked more like a sword.
That´s all we did in El Salvador. It was pretty scary, don´t you think?
As a bonus to you, some pictures from Lago de Atitlan in Guatemala:
Thanks for watching! Bye!
