We’ve made it to the weekend food festival to see what we can find while exploring the tiny streets of Juayua, El Salvador. This celebration happens weekly and brings other locals in as well as the random backpacker or traveling photographer.
Instead of the usual “story”, I’m going to break this post down into easy to view sections to give you a clear idea of this energetic day. You really cant make a wrong turn as you follow the streets lined with venders, music, people, and entertainment. So, please turn on your mind and open your eyes as you enjoy these photos!
I’m going to start out with my two favorite pictures of the day that capture the essence of the youth to the elderly of this brilliant village.
Entertainment! As you devour the local food and shop through the vendors, there is constantly stimulation all around you.
Care to get your nails done mid festival?
I’m sure you’re hungry by now…
Crazy corn! On the cob drizzled with a mustard mixture and red sauce then rolled in parmesan.
This is a lettuce bowl lined with boiled yuca, topped with coleslaw, salsa and chicharrón (fried pieces of pork rind or some kind of fatty fried pork… Yeh, not for me).
Tamarind balls coated in sugar.
Fruit and veggies (my favorite!)
Finally, let’s just take a stroll and see what the streets have to say.
…and a handstand of course!
I’ll leave you with my “creative” photo from the day. Thank you Juayua!
