Weekend in Ataco


Last Sunday we went to Ataco to celebrate Andrew’s Aunt Marta’s birthday. Ataco is one of the little towns that Salvadorans visit during the weekend to walk around the markets and do some shopping. We rented a van and drove through the Ruta de las flores (route of flowers) to get there. On the way we stopped at a little town near Sonsonate (can’t remember the name) to look at some shops that sell typical handmade Salvadoran goods. After that we went to a place called Los Patios that has a restaurant, sells art and, produces coffee. They call it “the patios” because they take all of the coffee and spread it out on the ground (big patios) so that it can dry. It is coffee harvesting time here and considered summer vacation for the kids that go to public school so they can help harvest the coffee. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
