Flag of El Salvador  ,
Saturday, January 27, 2007

After my three weeks of hardcore spanish, I took off to the beaches of El Salvador, without much of a plan... I met a girl from Amsterdam on the bus, and we chatted and ended up going to find her friends in La Libertad, a surfing town on the beach. La Libertad was a bit rough so we took off to El Zonte, a TINY little town right on this beautiful deserted beach. Lots of surfing, swimming, ping pong, getting to know the hammocks...

One day i went for a walk and came across a kid who was collecting crabs. We climbed around some pretty slick cliffs to his fishing spot. It was great! He caught one of those puffer fish!! Cant eat them, or touch them, so he just let him hang out there until a big wave came and took him back. I was really kicking myself for not having a camera, but then a really bloody big swell came and washed over us, we were totally soaked. Then i was glad i didnīt have my camera... Then as i was walking back i took out my wallet to dry it out a little, and... there was my camera, under the wallet. dummmb. no worries though its good as new.

So Maria from Amsterdam, a chap from Australia, and a couple, one from Whales and the other from Scotland, and I, hung out there for a good solid 5 days. My first room was only 5 bucks, and i soon found out why... you can see some pictures. the cockroaches where pretty bad, but having toilets without paper or flushing, a bucket to dump water on your head for a shower, tipped the scale for me. the other place was really beautiful and for 10 bucks. i got to be good buddies with the staff there. although they wouldnt let me go when i wanted to check out because and they claimed my bill was all wrong and had to wait for the boss... nearly missed the bus...

then i took off on a bus through honduras, into Nicaragua. After two nights here iīm heading up to a little farming town to hang out.
