... 11 certified tour guides in El Salvador and I was really looking forward to our day of going around San Salvador, the capital, and learning a bit more about the country itself. Selena was a fantastic tour guide, she knew so much about the history of the country and had a lot of interesting stories to tell about the times of the rebels coming down from the mountains to the city and about the 14 wealthy families.

She also had trouble remembering/pronouncing my name so I told her to call me Mack, which the family replied, "like Mack-Donald's?". I replied to them, "or like Big Mack". lol They thought that amusing. McDonald's, unfortunately, has established itself well in Central America.
