1 We took a break from Sta. Marta halfway through our visit to see the town of Suchitoto and nearby Lago (Lake) Suchitlan.
3 Betty in front of our hostel.
4 The street leading past our hostel.
5 Our bed room. Again, a bed made from a wooden frame and ropes. After our visit here, we were scratching a lot, blamed on bed bugs by some. I think it was mosquitos which came out after the rain in Sta. Marta.
6 Lounging in the court yard at the hostel.
10 Lady selling fruit in the market place.
11 Intercity bus.
12 Hotel / restaurant where we had lunch.
13 Students waiting to be served.
15 Sign on front of restaurant.
16 Memorial to Don Alejandro Cotto. (A web search after returning to the State reveals info about a famous Salvadoran filmmaker and writer named Don Alejandro Cotto.)
17 A up-scale hotel in Suchitoto. This is the nicest place we saw during our stay in El Salvador. Suchitoto is a popular place for people to go.
18 Mural just inside the hotel entrance.
19 Looking the other direction in the lobby where there is also a sculpture and pool, behind.
20 Hotel pool.
21 Street scene near hotel.
22 Students returning to hostel from a walk around town. The water puddle reminds me of our trek through town the night before: it rained very hard and there are no storm sewers in Suchitoto. So, the water runs off in the streets. It got deeper and deeper as we approached the restaurant which was down hill from the hostel. We were soaked from head to foot. Some of repaired to the bath room, took off clothing and wrung it out.
