San Salvador

Hot, hot, and a little more hot...

sunny 32 °C

Time just seems to disapear for me at the beach, almost like when I was little and my parents had to drag me away at the end of the day exhausted and sandy! Everyday but Wednesday I spent the day at the beach which is when I headed to San Salvador to check out the capital. I had heard mixed reviews about it and wanted to check it out for myself. I did not think there was much character overall besides the hot, sweaty, dirty streets only the cat calls out numbered the amount the drops of sweat pouring from my body. Maybe if I had been with someone else it would have been different but by the end of the day I was completely over the excessive attention, but so it goes. I did do a bit of shopping 3 pairs of flipflops for $3 USD...not too shabby! Finished the day with a few beers to celebrate St. Patty.

Today I am on the road again my time at the beach has come to an end and parting with El Tunco is hard! Heading back up north. When I am lucky I make the night bus...and when I am not there is always tomorrow ;) fingers crossed for swift boarder crossings!

Surf´s up El Salvador

El Tunco

32 °C

Made it down to El Salvador Monday, and managed to hit the waves that afternoon...it is like riding a very wet bike and managed to get up on my second attempt. Spent the whole of yesterday surfing and was back out in the water at 6:45 this morning - rocking a boogieboard this time as the waves are really good/bigish ( they were quite mushy the last two days). Just taking a breakfast/internet break now to get some new pics up.
I will let the pics speak for themselves but I feel a home here at the beach - it is in my blood. El Tunco
