What luck! Coming back from Suchitoto today we happened across the largest cauliflower in the world. It was returning after winning the contest that I can only assume took place somewhere in the west of El Salvador. Not only was it the largest, it was also the smartest; it was able to give us directions through San Martin in order that we could avoid a FMLN party.
Suchitoto was founded by the Spanish in the 16th century. It was the original capital of El Salvador until it was moved to the present-day, San Salvador, located in the Valle de las Hamacas (Valley of the Hammocks). It is well worth the visit for the beautiful, church, colonial buildings and the excellent restaurant "Los Almendros de San Lorenzo".
