You find solidarity throughout all shapes and sizes. The funny thing is this trait is found more in citizens and civilians within countries with low income and mainly high levels of poverty. This happens to be in a city called Tepecoyo, in the heart of El Salvador. This village girl happens to be walking my girlfriend and I back down mountain because busses and cars aren’t allowed on the road, it’s to steep. We enjoyed a meal with the family and taught the children of the village spanish. They live in a shack on top of a big mountain. They have little power and electricity, they use fire outside to cook and water from the stream to wash clothes. They walk miles to fill their tanks of fresh water so they can have something to drink all the time. One thing that took me by surprised was the amount of salt they eat with every meal. The way we would use butter on toast and while cooking is the way they consume the seasoning. You can easily tell that their is a big inequality problem throughout Tepecoyo, and even El Salvador.

I took this picture when In 2011. This man was sleeping on a sidewalk in a very popular tourist city. A lot of money come in and out of this city, this man see’s probably very little to none of that money.
