Day of the Dead in Nahuizalco

     Got the chance to celebrate the Day of the Dead in beautiful Nahuizalco.  In the background you can see the Santa Ana Volcano (left), Cerro Verde (middle), and Izalco Volcano (right). The debri field from the collapse of the Santa Ana summit (in the late-Pleistocene) reached the Pacific Ocean (40Km away) to form the Acajutla Peninsula.  Here's a cool paper by Siebert et al. 2003.
