Pupusas Salvadoreñas

Pupusas Salvadoreñas by José Moreno

Near Parque El Calvario a guy selling the real pupusas salvadoreñas is installed.  Prices are around 12Q to 18Q, depending on size. The 12Q pupusa is maybe 15cm and 18Q 25cm.

And listen to this crazy history. Last time I visited the place I could observe a big big hamburger for 10 persons. The crazy price was 150Q for one hamburger. Inside their was two pounds of meat, papatoes, cheese, tomatoes, dressing and more. If you are very hungry maybe it is for you. What do you think?

You can taste other options, buying pupusas at 7Q in Central Park all nights, but I prefered the 18Q one.

Beatiful statues by Marieke Smulders

Xela has hundreds of statues. The one on the photograph is located in front of the Municipal Theater (14 av. z 1). Other locations like the Central Park, the Benito Juarez park, Parque Bolivar. The most important and beautiful ones are located on the Cementery, but many bad people have cut heads and another parts of the statues for sale. You need to take a photo-walk, because in few years time there want be left anymore.

Throughout the cemetery are achieved xela how are you finding statues (many already incomplete) as and read the inscriptions and many have been here for over 150 years and are made of marble exported from Italy.

The heart shaped angel with heaven acsenso this scene is really no work sculpture in relief, statues of angels and souls are often mistaken for representing similar characteristics, this statue for example indicates that the wings are the preserve of figures of angels heavenly messengers and guides that help the soul to traffic light.

Por todo el cementerio de xela se logran encontrar estatuas como estas (muchas ya incompletas) según e leido en las inscripciones y muchas están aqui desde hace mas de 150 años y son hechas de marmol exportado desde italia.

El alma con forma de angel con acsenso al cielo esta escena no se encuentra realmente en escultura si no se trabaja en relieve, las estatuas de almas y angeles suelen confundirse por representar características similares, esta estatua por ejemplo indica que las alas son atributo exclusivo de figuras de angeles mensajeros y guías celestiales que ayudan al ánima al tránsito de su luz.
