... The sand was black and absorbed the incredible heat, so hot that if you lay down on a towel, the sand still burned you up. There was no shade, and the humidity - omg. 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. So when Miller Time came ...
Last stop, the ATM for cash and grocery for some cookies. I really wanted animal crackers, but we couldn't find them! I should have been more proactive about getting cash earlier in the week!

Arriving in this crazy city was smooth and painless enough I suppose. I had walked from my hotel in Santa Ana to the bus stop; no mean feat in the b˝lazing heat with all my bags. It was a good 20-30 mins, and the bus came within 5 mins. It is very reasonable for an especiale bus at $1.35 to go from one city to another. If only transport prices back in Europe were so decent!
I got a taxi to my hotel and checked in. I had to do a bit ...
