We all got frisked on the bus and our bags checked....however, several people were clearly carrying guns which didn't seem to be a problem. We're not sure what they were looking for if it wasn't weapons!!
The bus ride was a bus ride...about five hours, second class bus, no bathroom breaks. The border crossing was fine...no strange fees (actually, no fees at all) and they didn't even stamp my passport when I came into the country.
San Salvador is.....crazy. I was super super super scared when I first got here because it seems to be a hugely high crime area. Everyone has electrified barbed wire fencing, two gates on their houses and some have armed guards. However, as I walked around (brave, I know!) it dawned on me that Salvadorans might just be that paranoid, as there weren't many dodgy people out and everyone seemed to be walking. Anyway, that made me feel a little better, so that's what I'll choose to believe.
Regardless, there isn't much going on here, so I'm going to head out tomorrow and see if I can find my Aussie friends at the beach. If not, I'm going to stay in a nice hotel with a pool and work on my tan for a day. Or two.
