2 day visit to San Salvador. Yet another country with a tragic history of violence in the 1980s and a reputation as a pit of gang violence and murder capital of the world.

However.. Like everywhere – lots of friendly people – interesting museums and post conflict art galleries.

Iglesia El Rosario Cathedral is magnificent with its rainbow of stained glass. 

Vists to – Army museum – Art Gallery, History musuem of Anthropology, Romero Museum Museum of the Word and Image. What made the last in particualr very interesting was a focus on the impact of the conflict on women – in other ‘genocide’ museums I’ve visited it may be implied but never highlighted in such a sensitive way.

Sadly not an easy place for street photography due to risk of robbery so most pics inside.
