El Salvador

I have just realized that this is my first written and stamped postcard from Central/South America EVER! I'm so shocked. I'll try to arrange some other trades as soon as possible, because there is a whole new continent to explore! I'm not even going to mention Africa... 
So, Willian sent me a view from Joya de Ceren, El Salvador. Few words about El Salvador... El Salvador is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. El Salvador borders the Pacific Ocean on the south, and the countries of Guatemala to the west and  Honduras to the north and east. The country's capital and larger city is San Salvador, while Santa Ana and San Miguel are are country's important commercial and cultural centers. El Slvador has the population of approximately 5,8 million people. 
El Salvador has a huge variety of natural beauties, as well as flora nad fauna. Just an example: there are eight species of sea turtles in the world; six of them nest on the coasts of Central America, and four make their home on the Salvadoran coast. One more fact that deserv attention in my opinion... Tropical forests and overall forest cover has expanded by nearly 20% from the year 1992 to 2010, making El Salvador one of the few countries experiencing reforestation.

I forgot to mention that Joya de Ceren is an UNESCO Worl Heritage Site, a small farming village preserved remarkably intact under layers of volcanic ash, often referred to as the "Pompeii of the Americas". Thank you, William!
