San Salvador from on high
There are a lot of beautiful sights in El Salvador including some on the heights around San Salvador. I took the picture above from the high spot south of San Salvador called Puerto del Diablo looking towards the San Salvador volcano in the distance. It was a Saturday afternoon just before sunset and this popular location was busy with Salvadorans enjoying the view and the cooler temperatures at this high point.
A few days later I was at the top of the San Salvador volcano at Parque Nacional El Boquerón where I took this picture looking down into the volcano's steep crater.
The road to the summit on the west side of the volcano has spectacular views looking out over coffee bushes towards agricultural lands below.
While up there one can look at the beauty surrounding and wonder at the same time how many bodies were thrown off via Death Squads in the 80s.
It's probably 'puerta', inner-self. The devil's door, not the devil's harbour.
