Traveling through El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua has allows me to say that I’ve seen some of the world’s poorest places. In many parts of these countries the average person lives on less than $214 US a year, surviving on a staple of beans and rice for whatever meals are available. Nonetheless, the people were more generous and hospitable than any I have met yet.
The sand in El Salvador is all volcanic which is why all of these shots have a black background.
This Cappuchin monkey would raid the kitchen of our hostel every morning. They had named him Paco and he became a close friend while we stayed there.
This fisherman would cast his net like a parachute and catch hundreds of little fish as he pulled it back in. I still don’t understand how it worked but he seemed to have it down perfectly.
I took this photo while I was on a bus traveling through Honduras. The low light and the movement from all the ruts in the road meant that I had to take 123 shots before I finally got this focused one.
