I spent most of Friday soaking up all of Santa Ana's energy -- walking around the markets, hanging out in the central plaza, hitting up some of the pastry shops, and visiting some of the famous sites such as the Cathedral and the Santa Ana Theatre.
|One of the rooms of the huge building that holds the theatre. The theatre itself was completely dark, so I didn't get any pics worth posting.|
|The cathedral. Pigeons were flying everywhere.|
|Inside of the Cathedral|
|There was an art gallery inside the theatre, and this was one of the pieces. A kind of grim reminder of the scars that imperialism left on Central America.|
Volcán Izalco seen from the start of the hike up Volán Santa Ana.
|Volcán Santa Ana with a cloud settled right on top.|
|Atop Volcán Santa Ana. If you aren't careful up there, the wind will blow you straight over.|
|Frog and rabbit and some other stuff.|
|One of the many tents under which festival-goers gorged themselves.|
|Sitting in the central park during one of my many coffee-drinking sessions.|
|More park sitting. I did a lot of sitting and eating, if you haven't gathered that yet.|
|This was the last bit of grilled meat I had - some kind of really big snake. It was pretty good, but really chewy.|
