My first card from El Salvador comes from William. 🙂
San Salvador is the capital city of the Republic of El Salvador.It is located in the Salvadoran highlands, surrounded by volcanoes and prone to earthquakes. The Spaniards called the area “El Valle de Las Hamacas” (English: The Valley of Hammocks), a translation of the name given it by the native Pipil people in allusion to the need for beds that would sway with the earth’s movements during an earthquake. With a population of 567,698 (2,442,017 in the metro area), it is the fifth most populated city in Central America, and its metropolitan area is the second most populated.
