Week 5 in El Salvador

11 January 2010

I don’t have a lot to say this week to everyone, but I finally got my pictures.

Hey so I finally got my pictures with the cops, or the gang...don’t know the difference yet, but I’m starting to recognize the signs. Diezyocho (18 or XVIII ) is the more dominant gang here, and they tag everything...with spray paint, knifes, they have to claim their territory. That face isn’t because I’m nervous, it’s just the same day that I was able to buy some chocolate frosted fakes.

Tell Louis that main transportation is through buses and trucks. Yes there are motorcycles, but they are nothing to be proud of. I’ve never heard of any of the brands, but there are a couple of Yamahas roaming around. I actually saw my first Ford truck the other day, and the first Subaru as well; it’s very rare though.

Also that we use a computer library type thing. [referring to computers] We don’t have our own its a paid service to use machines that the dinosaurs were inventing. ---Louis was curious

So I saw something interesting. Hold your stomachs folks... lucky for you I didn’t take a photo. So, a bus hit a dog the other day at 80 mph. Personally I didn’t think these dogs could get uglier. Its brains flew out of its jaw. I didn’t know that was possible, but I guess I know now. Then a few days later, after it was nice and fermented and cooked onto the road, all the other dogs came and had a little afternoon supper. Oh yum, its probably because its better than the crumbs the people feed them.
