"At that volcano we hiked up and took tons of pictures and videos. When we got to the top we saw a volcano with a little volcano inside. It was so funny. Then we went to a beach. I became a mermaid in the sand. Vitor caught a crab. We had lots of fun. Then at night me, dad and Vitor went to a pool. I went in it and the others didn't. Then we went to a restaurant and we saw my friends mom, Carmen." - Sofia
Another good breakfast at our hotel and with our same driver, we were off for another full day. First stop was a volcano "Bocaron" which was basically right in San Salvador. A beautiful drive up and we reached the spot where we needed to hike a bit. It was a nice short hike with lots of beautiful plants and flowers on the way. When we reached the top it was a little cloudy but then the clouds lifted. It was really cool. There was a baby volcano in the big one. So cool and cute. We walked around the rim and looked at different view points. Had fun taking pictures with Daddy
and Vitor. _________________________________________________________________________________________________
We then went to eat Puposas. These are really popular in San Salvdor. We ordered a bunch of different ones and shared. They were real yummy.
Then it was on to the beach. We were there in less than 1 hour. We went to this one place in San Blas that had a restaurant and hammocks. We went right onto the beach. It was beuatiful dark sand. The waves were huge but we did not go wear the waves broke, just the smaller waves. I had so much fun with Daddy and Vitor in the water and even did some body surfing. __________________________________________________________________________________________________
We then played in the sand. We made a big hole and then I sat in it. Then I turned into a mermaid. Vitor caught a cool little crab. It was then time to get washed off and have our late lunch. Yummy sea food - fish, calamari, shrip. After kicking back in the hammocks, we took off. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
We were planning to be dropped off at the museum that Vitor wanted to go to, but it was closed. So we were dropped off at
one of the nicest hotels in the city - the Hilton Princess. The reason was that my great friend Luna's mom, Carmen, was staying there. What a coincidence! She was there to see her brother Victor swim in a big competition. We went swimming in the hotel pool. It was soooo cold. Vitor would not come in and Daddy only came in for a short time. We got to use her much needed shower while she was gone at the swimming competition.
After having a snack and watching the Miami Heat game in the bar, Carmen and her family (unfortunately without Luna and her dad, Sean who did not make the trip) came back and we had a good dinner at the hotel. We had to leave before everyone else because we had a late flight to catch.
So, a taxi, a tiring wait at the airport, and a short 2+hours flight (the majority of which I slept through) and we were back in Fort Lauderdale by 600am. A little problem at immigration with Vitor not being my daddy's son, but we passed through, changed in the car and made it to school in Miami on time! I
El Salvador achieved independence from Spain in 1821 and from the Central American Federation in 1839. A 12-year civil war, which cost about 75,000 lives, was brought to a close in 1992 when the government and leftist rebels signed a treaty that prov...more info
