Sta. Marta - Scenes
Map of Sts. Marta.
A local, typical intercity "bus."
Many buses in El Salvador are recycled school buses from the USA, painted bright colors.
Students getting ready for a ride to see the Limpa River, about 10 km from Sta. Marta.
Trying for a cell phone signal.
Sta. Marta church. Featured on the right is a picture of martyr Father Oscar Romero.
Street scene near church.
Hill side with crops planted by hand. There is little mechanized farming due to the nature of the land and high cost of machinery.
The home of one of the more prosperous families in Sta. Marta.
This mule stood just inside a barbed wire fence we passed each day on the wya to meals.
Another street scene — livestock roams the streets.
More livestock near a store.

Another typical home.
School children on the path and bridge over a stream that flows through town. We followed the path to and from meals.
