The oldest church in Central America

Our Spanish school lays on some vaguely organised activities to keep us entertained in the afternoons. During a wonderfully sunny afternoon we stayed in and watched a film called El Norte. The following day we went to visit what is reputed to be the oldest church in Central America in a town called Salcajá. Unfortunately it rained remarkably hard and God wasn´t at home - the door was locked and the church hasn´t been used for years. It isn´t a very pretty church: it looks like it has been liberally plastered with concrete sometime between now and 1400. It does have some amusing comedy lions and bananas above the door though.

We steamed on the chicken bus home. All very soggy. Next time we´ll attempt to add some photos for your viewing pleasure.
