Independence Celebrations!

This week started out with a lot of rain. Very hard and very strong for the beginning of the week. But, now, it's gorgeous, if not a little hot. When I say hot, though, I don't mean DC hot. I hear Tennessee and DC have been having hot days, and that must suck. In El Salvador, 90 degrees is a hot day. It's normally between 75-85. Today it's 90. It's the perfect day to sit by our pool. Ok -- enough of that.

Does anyone know when Canada Day is? Well, if you must know, it's on July 1st. I will never forget this because we went to a Canadian Embassy Canada Day celebration at an art museum... a day early. We didn't know many people going, so, we got to the museum and didn't see the car of the person who we knew that was going. So, we did what any aspiring diplomat would do... we decided to drive around for 10-15 minutes until they got there. After said time, we sent a text to our friend asking when the party was and then entered the museum. We were directed to a theatre, where a French movie with Spanish subtitles was being shown. Odd, but, Québécois speak French, so, what the hell. After we sat down, we got a text from our friend saying it was at 7... the next day. ¡Qué lástima! So, we went last night. It was fun. The museum had a lot of Inuit art on display. We then had dinner at a restaurant attached to different art museum. ¡Qué rico!

Tonight is the US embassy Independence Day party -- should be a good time. Voy a chupar mucha cerveza y voy a emborracharme. Not really, but, it's fun to use slang, isn't it? I'm looking forward to it.

We're going to be spending this Independence Day weekend going to El Imposible National Park, where we're going to frolic in the woods and play under some waterfalls. This is our first solo trip out of San Salvador, so, we're really looking forward to it. We have some visitors coming soon, so, we need to get out there and find out what else there is to do outside of the city!
