What I did
Disco Mowy - Suchitoto

Flag of El Salvador  , Cuscatlán,
Saturday, February 11, 2012

We left Valle de Angeles at 6 am.  We found out that the sulfur smell in the room was from the pipes.  Not good.  We retraced our route back to Tegucigalpa on the same bad road but the traffic was much worse.  Poor Daniel.  We stopped briefly at a gas station for a snack/pee stop and now we are at the border with El Salvador.  It is around noon.

We crossed the border into El Salvador at Ela Matillo.   I had some trouble because they couldn't find my Nicaragua stamp - the red doesn't show up well on US passports. 

We had some wonderful, though obstructed, views of two volcanoes - San Miguel and San Vincente - as we drove toward our destination.  Lou kept telling us to keep our expectations low.  We arrived in Suchitoto at 5:30 pm.  We had a delicious tiramisu cake to celebrate Chris's birthday, which is actually tomorrow.  Kerry, Jane, Naomi, Clare, David & I went to the Harlequin restaurant for dinner.  I had shrimp fajitas and we all split 2 bottles of wine among the 6 of us - one each of blanco y tinto.

As we going back to our courtyard hotel with our waterfall shower (Los Almedros de San Lorenzo, with a dog named Lorenzo), we heard music and Clare was the brave one to stop and go in to Disco Mowy.   We each paid our $2 entrance and $1 for the local Pilsner beer - that is the brand name.  First there was a young woman singer in a cowboy hat who was very good.  After I had taken a few photos of her, she came over to our table and asked where I was from.  I told her Nueva Yorca and she announced it.  After her performance, a group set up with instruments - trombone,drums, keyboard - maybe something else - and both a male and female singer.  I took photos of them too.  Jane asked me if I wanted to dance and I said maybe, in a while.  I was almost ready, when she asked Clare, who said yes immediately.  Then I was inspired as well and all three of us went out to dance.  It was a really good band I thought and I thoroughly enjoyed the music and dancing.  This left Kerry and David sitting at the table.  David took a few photos of us with my camera while we were on the dance floor.  Even though we probably could have danced a lot  longer, we decided we should call it a night. 

When we got back to our room, Clare and I chatted until after 1 am  when the thought of having to get up early hit us.
