I decided to get out of San Salvador as quickly as possible, as it was just a very scary place. Since I wasnt quite all better, I went to the beach near La Libertad. The beach was okay, good for surfing (which I didnt do!) but they had a nice pool, good ...

Went to El Zonte with Ricardo, a surfer friend of Karla's. I bought a nice little 5'9" fish and tried it out at El Sunzal. My poor ribs felt the five months I'd spent out of the water, but it was fun anyway. The locals tried to be scary with me: ...
