Two brothers pose for a photo
I arrived in El Salvador yesterday and have only taken a few shots with my camera. I consider it a success that I actually have my Nikon D200 with me on this trip considering my recent track record of leaving it behind
Landing at Comalapa International Airport outside of San Salvador I was immediately struck by two things. Firstly the country seems to have done well embracing the eco-tourist industry. I saw few business travelers but loads of backpack totting tourists intent on finding spirituality amidst the breathtaking landscape of El Salvador. I wish them luck in their wanderlust.
The second thing that caught my attention is the plethora of church missionary groups running around in their uniform-like, matching t-shirts. They were everywhere, bright-eyed with a tinge of apprehension, ready to spread spirituality and to help the helpless. I questioned from an economist point of view which the two groups contributes greater to the Salvadorian economy? I suspect its a fairly close.
