Nothing much to report from today. I decided to explore downtown Salvador which is apparently the more dangerous of places in El Salvador. There's a guy in the hostel also from England - London - who is around 45-50. Nice guy, but he smelled really badly. He was apparently a "medical traveller" and was moving through central and South America to have cheap medical work done. All he had was a carry on bag ...

They should call it Playa Sweat Like El Tunco. We planned on being there for two nights, which turned into 3 - here's how: El Salvador, like many Latin American countries, shuts down all sale of alcohol the day before, the day of and the day after major elections.

And as my vision has just reminded me- chickens too. They don't fly like pigeons do but odd none-the-less. I didn't realise how odd chickens were until I came here. They also seem to find themselves in trees a lot which baffles me- pretending to be the same species as the rest of their ...
