Waking up in San Salvador

Waking up in San Salvador is a sequence of sounds. The first sounds to greet the day are the dogs in the street who bark to maintain their territory. That is followed by a cacophony of various bird calls - some sounding like whips and staplers, others sounding absolutely beautiful. You can hear a rooster far off in the distance. Next, voices and the sounds of trucks and motorcycles. But it's time to get up when the church bells sound at 5:30. We open the curtain and across the street we see our neighbors standing on their balcony, watching the city come to life. Kim Kramer
