a beautiful nation

( the team of young adults that I had the privilege of heading up & rooming with this week...
with our wonderful, sweet, fantastic translator.)

Most of the places that we visited in El Salvador were the worst areas  in and around the capital city. However, just like any other place El Salvador has it's good places & it's bad.

The small area that we experienced was so beautiful. Mountains lined the background. 

Volcanoes rose through the clouds.
We were fortunate enough to be able to hike down a beautiful waterfall.

some were adventurous enough to swim at the base.
I stayed on the slippery rocks & took pictures...

hairy little fellas we found on the hike down
We also got to hang out on the beach to relax & reflect on the week. 

The Pacific ocean is a lot rougher than the Atlantic.
I have battle wounds to prove it. We had a lot of fun though.

El Salvador is a beautiful nation. The people we met were just as lovely.
