First glimpse of El Salvador
The entire journey from Atlanta over Georgia, Florida, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala – all I could see from my carefully chosen window seat was … clouds. Finally, about 30 minutes away from San Salvador, the clouds started breaking up and I got my first glimpse of the country.
Seems like a very mountainous country. Makes sense – since it is squarely in the Ring of Fire.
Bored by the clouds, I say in my seat and brushed up my Spanish and picked up some trivia about El Salvador. The following might interest you:
1. El Salvador is the smallest Central American country.
2. It is the only Central American country that does not have a Caribbean coast.
3. This blew me away… There are about 10 million Salvadorans. 1 out of 3 of them live in the USA!!! The whole country has same number of people as Greater Atlanta!
