El Cuco……… El Salvador’s paradise

After running the gauntlet of flooded roads and cow herds, we pulled into El Cuco just before dark looking for a “tranquillo” spot to refresh our minds and bodies before the mayhem of trying to cross two borders and traverse three Central American countries in one day. Our plan of attack was to chill inContinue reading “El Cuco……… El Salvador’s paradise”

“Pupusa” It’s what’s for dinner!

“Pupusa’s” It’s what’s for dinner. Pupusas are similar to corn tortillas, only thicker and stuffed with cheese, beans or meat.

Fast forwardContinue reading ““Pupusa” It’s what’s for dinner!”

We are happy to report it was not as hardContinue reading “El Salvador”
