  El Viejo Cuca resting in La Montañona

Favorite thing: In June 2002, I worked with the Peace Corps volunteer who was stationed in the neighboring municipality of El Carrizal, with three teachers from the high school in La Laguna, and with a local police officer to organize a two-day youth encounter in La Montañona. Thirteen teenagers from La Laguna and El Carrizal participated in this activity, which included a variety of activities designed to help them build their self-esteem and to make them realize the importance of planning for their future, as well as brief talks about environmental education and the history of the La Montañona forest. It all went pretty well, except for the fact that the volunteer from El Carrizal got extremely ill and had to be rushed to San Salvador, which then meant that another volunteer and I had to accompany the El Carrizal kids back home and then spend the night there because, by the time we got there, it was impossible to find transportation back to La Laguna.
