Now finally a trip to the beach. We spent an amazing day north of El Zonte. We had a cabana for shade. The sea here is like bath water. We enjoyed ceviche and sopa de mariscos. We also tried an El Salvador treat cheese puffs and salsa. There were all kinds of shenanigans including mud fights and interpretive dance. There is a nice pool here too.
The only way to end a day at the beach! Drive thru burgers.
Worldwideride and the GSSWEDE spent the last few days in El Salvador living it up with MFF (Mario, Fernanda, and Fernandita). Happy Valentines Everyone!
Fernanda wanted to take us to her favorite quiche pizza place. The décor includes Elvis posters, taxidermy, and Chinese paper lanterns. The pizza however is amazing and the beer mug is so cold that the beer ices when you pour it in. We had the “crazy pizza” with a rainbow of toppings, but the secret is the delicious tomato salsa you put on top.
Carlos at the Barracuda showed us a great time on Friday night and he makes a mean caprina. Orvar even got into the action behind the bar as the master blender.
We had such a good time at the Barracuda we went back for lunch the next day of Oysters and champagne. They make these really good margarita azul with blue curacao. The seafood here is amazing.
We set out to ride the tunnels along the coast road. This is a curvy road with 5 tunnels. We liked it so much we turned around and rode it back again before a stop for a snack.
Orvar was so jealous of our touratech pannier system, that he bought a set from Mario at Motorider. The only problem was to get his old ones home to Sweden for his other bike. Well in the end was no problem at all.
