Panama has its canal, Belize/Guatemala/Costa Rica (in terms of their vacation appeal, they are fairly interchangeable) have their beaches and snorkeling, and El Salvador has…has what? Let’s Start At The Beginning Sitting in class one day, I received a handout advertising a scholarly trip to El Salvador.
I’m pretty sure colleges/universities are obliged to tack on “scholarly” as a way of legitimizing what would otherwise simply be a frivolous romp around foreign soil.
Legal and illegal emigration has continued at a high rate since the end of the civil war in 1992. Almost all residents speak Spanish, which was brought in by the conquistadors.
Before the Spanish conquest, the area was inhabited by the Pipil Indians.
Mountains separate the country into the southern coastal belt, the central valleys and plateaus, and the northern mountains.
These regions have created slight cultural variations because of the different crops grown in each one.
However, the city of San Salvador can be incredible – if you stay safe.For the longest time, I've felt like I was the only black woman married to a Salvadorian guy. We've been together 9 years and live in an area with a lot of Salvadorians (outside of DC) but I have never met another couple like us.To all the black woman/hispanic man relationships, what have your experiences been like?They've been really accepting of me and are truly my family now.I've gone to El Salvador to meet some of his family there as well.
