5/18/09 Some Final Thoughts on El Salvador
So some final thoughts on El Salvador: 1.There are guns all over this place. If you think there are too many guns in the U.S., you should visit El Salvador. In Latin America it seems that all places which may have cash on hand have an armed security guard, and El Salvador steps this up a few notches. Armed guards with semi-automatic shotguns, pistols, and shells everywhere from the gas station to the ice cream parlor. 2. As mentioned before, it's not really tourist-oriented which is what I liked about it. It felt like I was back home for a day or two, going to the movies, eating out, and paying with American dollars, at a fraction of the cost. 3. There is a lot more integration between different people, not the overwhelming difference between the majority indigenas and minority ladinos in Guatemala. 4. The women dress in western clothes, are more attractive, and definitely more forward, especially on the dance floor. grinding against your crotch as hard as possible seems to be the preferred move.
