El Salvador

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. It borders the Pacific Ocean, between Guatemala and Honduras, and is where My Parents are from. There was a twelve year civil war in the eighties and early ninties between the conservative US backed government and leftist gorilla Rebels which left over 75,000 dead. Today, crime runs rampant and El Salvador is known as one of the most dangerous places to visit. It is also one of the most beautiful, in my opinion. troplical rainforests, volcanoes, and friendly people in old cities, populate the land. And the food, holy shit the food, soo good. Panes con chumpe, pupusas, yuca, tamales, all worth the trip.
(this is a good essay on the sweatshops found in El Salvador.)
