    I love all the crazy celebrations they have in Latin America…and all the lovely noise that goes with it! Some of those bands are quite talented, others…not so much.

    That’s a helluva marching band! Love the colours and composition of this photo.

    Glad to see more folks checking out El Salvador, It’s one of the best places in Central America.
    Something I really noticed in El Salvador - Their polite manners toward each other.
    In San Salvador I was in a shop to have a camera repaired. Whenever a customer or an employee first came into the room, the new person would say “Buenas tardes” and *everybody* in the shop would stop their conversation and say*Buenas tardes” back!
