Just Click: We Don't Get Out Much
The third destination for this year's virtual tour of El Salvador is ... our car!
Due to the pandemic, we are mostly staying at home. However, on Sundays, we do make the drive through San Salvador out to our church community a little bit north of the capital city so we can attend worship. The number of cases of COVID-19 in that area is very low, so we feel pretty safe.
In anticipation of another episode of Just Click, I snapped some photos during the drive home from church. So, let's begin our virtual tour of the route on Troncal del Norte into the city of San Salvador.
|We begin on the road from Tonaca to Troncal del Norte. Notice the motorcycle
with the purple Hugo backpack. That is the Salvadoran version
of Instacart - you can now literally get anything delivered.
|I am forever trying to capture a decent photo of a bus with shark fins on the top.
|Looking toward the hills of Nejapa, you can see the dry season in its full beauty.
|Tightly packed communities are hidden behind walls and often behind
the trees. Different trees lose their leaves at different times during

on otherwise bare branches.
|Bambi has brought some friends to live in Apopa.
|The Acelhuate River runs through Apopa. It flows from the
Lempa River and breaks into a few small tributaries and is highly
|I am always curious to see what will be hanging outside of
this store. Like many small stores in El Salvador, this one
is tightly packed with a little bit of everything.
|Look! We caught up to the cane truck. Also of interest in this photo
is the person walking with Valentine treats.
|I promise this is the last photo of the cane truck.
|It is election season. Candidate billboards are everywhere.

of current president Nayib Bukele.
I hope you enjoyed the drive! I recently made a little driving video for some school kids who are learning about El Salvador. (It is also pandemic-style, which means I inserted videos from the past to give it a little more excitement.)
