Hola; Nous avons traversé le Salvador et dormis dans un petit hotel a la frontiere du Honduras. Demais, hier, on traverse une partie du Honduras pour aller au Nicaragua. Je viens de mettre des photos pendant 2 heures, voir anciens blogs. J.P.... read more

C;est vraiment intense, les graffiti ont presque tous un caractere revolitionnaire. Le socialisme, la lutte contre les crimes de guerre, la revolution agraire, contre le capitalisme, des pensee de poetes... C;est vraiment beau, vous aller bientot avoir quelques photos. Les marginaux sont plus du style iron maiden, korn, megadeth... de la musique un peu plus hard.. Le rap ne fait pas tres grande presence depuis qu;on est en amerique centrale. Au plaisir, Gab... read more

Voici quelques remarques sur la normalité en voyage: * Si vous lisez une pancarte aux dounes de Stantead qui dit "N´arretez-vous pas sur la ligne jaune", c´est normal vous arrivez aux Etats-Unis * Si vous lisez une publicité qui dit "A ville avec magie", c´est normal, vous etes a Guadalajara au Mexique * Si vous voyez des "Guichettes", c´est normal vous etes á Tapachula au Mexique * Si la table du voisin bouge rapidement alors que vous ètes sur Internet, c´est normal, certains Mexicains de Tecoman n´ont aucun problémes a se masturber en publique. * Si vous voyez un carré blanc sur l´écran de projection d´un film, c´est normal, c´est le reflet de la lumiére de la salle de régie a Guatémala * Si, dans le milieu de l'action, Superman est sur le point de mourir ... read more


C;Est beau en maudit. Les gens sont plus sympha, je trouve, les sourrires sont grands, les regards espiegles, les montagnes sont recouvert de jungle ( du moins plus que ce que j;ai vu au Guate ) La monnaie c;Est le dollar americain, ca fait 4 ans que leur monnaie le colon n;est plus en vogue. C;est trippant, on va aller dans le nord du pays demain aller monter, le mont Pital, 2736m, ca doit etre beau en maudit. Ils disent que lors d;une journee ensoleillee on peut voir tout le pays... C;est un petit pays.. Gab ... read more

On en arrivé a San Salvador, le voyage s´est bien déroulé, la douane aussi. On va tenter de trouver un Internet plus rapide pour mettre des photos parce que celui-ci et hyper lent. Ici tout ce paie en argent Americain, on a soupé (trois repas, 2 breuvages) pour 8,65$ total. C´est bien, mais notre meilleur á date, c´était á Guatémala hier, trois repas, trois breuvages pour 45 Quetzales (7$ Canadien) et c´était trés bon. Le Salvador est un pays montagneux et jusqu´a maintenant trés beau. A+ J.P. ... read more


... BETTER REMEMBER THIS ... You'd better remember this. Because people will ask you. Whether you want them to or not, they'll ask you how El Salvador was. And though you won't know where to start, you're going to have to have something to tell them. A shrug of the shoulders and "Good" won't be enough. So you'd better remember this. Open the parts of your mind you need, and work them over until you've gotten them just right. Then put what you know in a place that will be easy to get to. Deep, but not too deep. Just enough so that even though no one else can see it, you know it's there, and you can see it and feel it, and you know it makes up a part of who you are now, ... read more

Intro to Suchitoto Suchitoto, 47km north of San Salvador, is a great little town with colonial buildings and cobblestone streets. A cultural capital during the heyday of the indigo trade, it is now experiencing something of an arts revival. Suchitoto overlooks the Embalse Cerron Grande, also known as Lago Suchitlan, a reservior for hydroelectric power made by damming the Rio Lempa. The project displaced thousands of farmers from the fertile banks of the Rio Lempa, many of who became fisherman. A pretty trail leads to the lake, where boat trips are possible. The area is also a bird migration zone: as many as 200 species have been spotted. Thousands of hawks and falcons fill the skies as the seasons change, and birds of all sorts nest in the relative safety of the lake's islands. It is ... read more

Update The map we've posted detailing our route through El Salvador isn't 100% correct. Like I always said, our plans are "subject to change." Since we spent an extra night in Guatemala, we more/less decided to make a B-line for San Salvador and then head north (bypassing some of Western Guatemala). So, the route line is correct... we just didn't stop (or make that funny circle) in Western El Salvador. Anyways... I suppose I am being a bit too detail oriented. Enjoy the blog entry! Bienvenido a El Salvador The landscape remains the most turbulent aspect of El Salvador. Volcanoes arise from flat valleys and lakes fill ancient craters. The Pacific Ocean slams the coast and mixes with the fresh waters of the many rivers slithering through the country. Despite deforestation and high population density, El ... read more

Awesome Cathedral (kinda shaped like an old airplane hanger!)


While sitting in the airport during our 4 hour layover in El Salvador on the way back to the States, looking up, I noticed a small bat on the ceiling. I have no idea how this poor fella had gotten into the airport but I can imagine the bright lights and the loud speaker going off next to him weren’t exactly pleasant. Considering I wasn’t sure how the airport police in El Salvador would react if I told them about the ceiling bat, I opted to let this little guy fend for himself and get himself back outside quietly. Besides, the airport police looked too busy going through people’s bags that were standing in the check-in line to be bothered with a bat. Mike and I actually saw the inside of one guy’s luggage that contained ... read more
