    February 6, 2017 in El Salvador ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Ataco was even smaller than Juayúa but still a little nicer with lots of murals on the exterior walls of the houses. We explored the town and went up to Mirador de la Cruz de Ataco from where we had a good view over the town and the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. We also saw a professional "documentary" been shot up there - a guy was holding a picture of different beer bottles and on the count of three he let it fly away with the wind. Luckily it was attached to a nylon string so it wouldn't really fly away as they had to shoot this part a few times 😅.
    Later Sebastian and I went for dinner and ordered some specialty and were pretty excited about that. When the food arrived and it was a big soup with some vegetables and fruits and a whole chicken leg in it we were a little disappointed first. But even though it wasn't what we expected it still tasted really good.

    Abkühlen in Ataco

    April 28, 2018 in El Salvador ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Auf dem Weg nach Santa Ana machten wir einen Zwischenstopp in dem netten Ort Ataco. Bei den üblichen Temperaturen von weit über 30 Grad kam uns eine Abkühlung im Hochland von El Salvador sehr gelegen.

    Auf der Suche nach einer Herberge für die Nacht stießen wir per Zufall auf „La Posada de Don Oli“ was uns auf Anhieb super gefiel. Wir wurden sehr herzlich begrüßt und uns wurde ein leckerer Willkommenskaffee serviert. Später stellte sich heraus, dass dies das Haus des Bürgermeisters ist. 😁
    Am Nachmittag schlenderten wir durch die Straßen und erleichterten unseren Geldbeutel. Ataco ist bekannt für sein Kunsthandwerk.
    Am Abend fand im Dorf eine große Fiesta statt. Die Musikanlage bestand aus einer Boxenwand von mindestens 6x5 Metern.Die Musik war so laut, dass man es dort nicht aushielt. Ganz schön „loco“ die Salvadorianer 😄
    Zum Frühstück wurde uns wie schon so oft Gallo Pinto (Reis mit Bohnen) mit Spiegelei und einer süßen Kochbanane serviert.

    El Salvador and torrential rain

    September 17, 2017 in El Salvador ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    This morning we checked out the market for breakfast. I had scrambled eggs with sausage and grilled banana. I also ordered a smoothie but I was scared to drink it as it was originally made using tap water. We walked along the streets where people were sitting lining the footpaths. I found a chocolate coated frozen banana which was quite exciting. We then went to a 98 year old lady's house who rolls her own cigars with tobacco leaves. We all had a try which was quite fun. We then piled into the bus to drive to Ataco.
    We stopped at lake for lunch and then arrived in town where it was raining very heavily.
    We went to wine bar, ate pizza and got caught in rain.

    Waterfall and Pupusas

    September 18, 2017 in El Salvador ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Breakfast this morning was at little cafe in town. Food was yummy scrambled eggs, rice and beans with grilled plantain. The coffee was even a little strong which was good. We had a look at shops before heading to the bus stop where we caught a local bus, then a short tuk-tuk ride to a local waterfall. The falls were beautiful and there was extra security, men with machetes and police to make sure it was safe. We then got a tuk-tuk and bus back to town. I went for a walk around town and did some shopping. We all made pupusas for dinner which is a flour batter with different fillings. I had pork, mushrooms and cheese. It comes with a pickled cabbage and tomato sauce.Read more

    En Concepción de Ataco se puede encontrar tiendas que venden artesanías con una gran variedad de esculturas, adornos, tejidos, bordados, llaveros y velas de café. La población nativa de Ataco aun conserva muchas de las costumbres y tradiciones de sus abuelos, que va de generación en generación a través de la tradición oral, resguardando hasta ahora un poco de nuestra cultura nahuat.Read more
