For spring break my mom and I went to San Miguel, El Salvador. El Salvador is just at tiny country of the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is a tropical country meaning it is very hot and humid.
When we got there the only thing you could feel was the heat and the humidity, it was unbearable. It was the middle of summer and all you could hope for was a little rain, but that was not going to happen. I was really happy to see all my family but I could not stand the heat, so for a few days I was not in a good mood. All I could think about besides the heat was the food; I could not wait to eat all the traditional food. When we finally got to San Miguel from the airport, the first thing in my mind was Riguas con Queso, they are like tortillas but made differently and in the middle they put cheese, a really special cheese, it is called Quesillo. We got some then we went to the house where we will be staying. It was so different at night because I was tired at eight o’clock but in the U.S. the time would be ten o’clock, and I woke up at five in the morning because it would be seven o’clock in the U.S.
We went to El Cuco, a local beach every citizen and tourist visits. We stayed in a little house, and the beach was just a short walk away from us. Everyone is very friendly and a lot of people are trying to get you to buy food, jewelry, and things for your house. I bought some bracelets for myself and my mom bought an Amaca. We ate some sandwiches then we went home. The next day we went to the pool with my aunt and her family. It was the day after a holiday, Viernes Santo, so it was very crowded. My cousin and I walked around for a while then we took my little cousin to the pool. It was probably like four or five went I heard thunder, I did not think it was going to rain so I went back to the pool, after a while the sky started getting darker and darker that is when I went to the bathroom and changed. All you could see was people grabbing their stuff, getting to their cars, and trying to go home. We started to get our stuff ready and we got to the car it started to rain, it was not light rain, it was heavy and the car we were in was a pickup truck and if you did not had a towel over your shoulders it would feel like someone was poking you. The next day we had a party and we invited everyone and we bought pizza, and we had a good time.
I think I learned something from this trip, and that is that you really do not need a lot of stuff or technology to be in touch with people, you can go visit them and have a good time with them. Another thing I learned is to let others borrow your stuff, even if you do not want to. This trip also made me a lot closer to my mom and that is really cool. I would like to go back to El Salvador but I do not think we will be going back for a while
