Just Click: We Still Don't Get Out Much
In El Salvador, perhaps like wherever we may be, the pandemic still impacts our decisions about gathering in one place or another. During our recent brief time in El Salvador, we mostly stayed home. No large group gatherings are permitted. Eating outdoors still seemed fairly safe, so we met up with a friend here or there. Worship in a mostly open-air setting seemed on the edge of safe.
As we drove around a bit in San Salvador and from home to church, a few things caught my eye. So, while most visits to El Salvador remain virtual, here are a few images taken from my car window which might trigger a memory or just make you chuckle.
|These typically white trucks can maneuver in traffic, park in teeny spots, |
and carry pretty heavy loads. Looks like this little guy has had his share of road adventures.
|Moving your mattresses? Sure, just tie them up top, hold on with one|
hand, and drive with the other. Yeah, that's safe.
|Now this is how you move mattresses. I seriously always get|
a kick out of seeing these colorful stacks of colchones.
|We often see bikers along this stretch of highway in Valle de Ángel.|
It is a very long, slow uphill climb into San Salvador. When we pass them by,
we usually say, "God bless you, bikers" with a tone of real respect.
|"You don't see that very often," said my husband.|
"What?" Oh, then I saw it.
Can you figure out what caught our eye?
How many aguas de coco can people sell?
Seriously, they are everywhere!
|Do you see any safety concerns in this photo?|
Perhaps the woman on the right does not seem too stable in case of sudden stop or start.
The guy in the truck on the left seems stable enough.
Can we say, flammable?
|New cute vehicle alert!|
What will he haul...?
