Off the Beaten Path: Beyond Art in La Palma

One of my favorite Salvadoran towns is La Palma. Famous for its history as a place of peace and a place of art, it's also a great place to hang out, to go for a walk, to enjoy the cool evenings and to grab a good meal.

The last time that I was in La Palma happened to be on the celebration of the patron saint day to honor the Sweet Name of Maria, which meant lots of fun and sweets in the streets. I took a walk and took a few photos, stopping for a little while in the park to write in my journal. While I was seated on a comfy park bench, a kid on a skateboard flew right over my head! What a surprise!

The treats are mostly made from cane syrup. It was fun to see all the different varieties, and to taste a few too.
