News from Tiff: El Salvadore-Santa Ana
"We are staying at a place called Hotel Livingston but
don´t know why its called that as El Salvadore in no
way resembles England--probably cause its more like
Africa. No tourists here--the experience is quite
authentic. Our hotel gave us a choice, we could have
a toilet seat or a room key because there was no room
that actually had both.
The poverty is Central America is impossible to
describe. The truely poor (and there sre lots of
them) have absolutely nothing--not a stick of
furniture-not a change of clothes-nothing. Its quite
unbelievable. If you have anything at all you have to
protect it with walls and razor wire and armed guards.
Yet the people have proven wonderful as always.
We are taking a bus to a volcano tomorrow and trying
to return to San Salvadore on the bus tomorrow to
catch a 5 A.M. bus to Managua Nicaragua. Hope it
Both Honduras and El Salvadore are much more beautiful
than I expected. Honduras has gorgeous mountains and
El Salvadore has volcanoes everywhere and is the most
beautiful green ever."
