We’re in a new country, with internet connections not that good as in Guatemala. So after spending a lot of time in the internetcafe to get the pictures uploaded and the story written in dutch the spirit is gone to do it all in english too, sorry! So here are just some pictures and the links to the photoalbums:

Muurschilderingen in de stijl van Fernando LlortNo art!
We also wanted a painting from El Salvador. Fernando Llort has inspired a whole village with his style. The paint it on everything except on canvas. So we have to do it with the photo’s we took.
