El Salvador has a fair share of charming villages. They even host an annual Puebla contest, voting for the best village, and La Palma is always doing well. Besides being inhabited by friendly people, it is an art centre, which they are not shy to show. Pretty much every surface, being it a wall, pole or door is painted with "La Palma" motifs in fresh colours. We're not sure if the residents think it is as pretty as the rest of us, but we like it... at least for a day.
