Onwards and upwards La Palma, El Salvador, Monday, 26 April 2010 7:55pm

We swung by a dive shop this morning to try to arrange a lake dive this week. They usually only do them on Saturdays, so it may not happen, but the shop will see about it. The remarkable thing about this is that it was our first driving trip of any significant distance in San Salvador in which we made no wrong turns.

We rearranged our itinerary slightly to make diving later in the week easier. We planned to spent tonight in Suchitoto, and head up to La Palma later in the week, but we've reversed those in order to be closer to the capital (and the lake dive) later.

La Palma is a pretty town in the mountains. It's very close to the highest peak in El Salvador, and almost at the border with Honduras. The town is famous for art, and many of the buildings and lampposts are covered with murals.
