Juayua, El Salvador

Saturday July 31, 2010

Finally back to traveling and seeing the sights. Juayua is the beginning of my journey down the Ruta de las Flores, a winding ride through coffee country, from Sonsonate to Ahuachapan. These mountainous villages are flanked by coffee farms and volcanoes. There is a large outdoor food fair on the weekends near the Parque Central. Will travel for another week or so and then head back to Antigua. Should visit at least 3-4 other villages before crossing back into Guatemala.

Food Fair

Saturday July 31, 2010

Every weekend Juayua has a food fair that is located around the central park. There are over 50 food stalls cooking up everything imaginable but chicken, shrimp and ribs seem to be the favorites. The food is truly incredible. There are large tents everywhere with plastic tables and chairs and local favorite singers at several venues throughout the food fair. Most pictures were taken before the crowds arrived as I quickly forgot about taking pictures and enjoyed the festivities. They do this EVERY WEEKEND. Too much fun.

Just setting up before the crowds arrived.

Back in Antigua for 3rd time this trip

Friday August 13, 2010

Back in Antigua for 3rd time this trip to get my tattoo at 3:30 today and then catch a shuttle at 5 am Tuesday to the Guatemala City Airport. Guatemala is definitely worth a trip in itself. With Antigua surrounded by volcanoes, Lake Atitlan (one of most beautiful lakes in the world, Chichicastenago market and Tikal just to name a few, there is so much to do and see it can easily fill 2-4 weeks. I did not make it to Semuc Champey which is a series of pools of water which most say is the most beautiful place in Guatemala. I will post my final pictures of the trip later on Saturday or Sunday. Much appreciation to those who took the time to look at my blog and share this trip with me.
