Yesterday, Keily and I accompanied the EWB folks on their final day excursion to a few points of cultural interest around the country. Unfortunately, while they had planned to visit the Mayan ruins at Joya de Ceren, San Andres, and Tazumal, we arrived to find them closed on Mondays. So we rejigged plans to visit the following places along the “Route of the Flowers” instead:
- Juayua – a little town up in the hills known for its colonial architecture, impressive cathedral, brightly-coloured murals and very popular food festivals
- Nahuizalco – a town known especially for its wicker and tule furniture and other handcrafts
- El Jardin de Celeste – a fantastic restaurant with beautiful gardens and GREAT food
The day gave Keily and I a good opportunity to get to know each other more and to discuss our plans for the next eight weeks. She’s a lovely woman and we really seem to be on the same page in terms of our expectations and hopes for the project.
