Desperation in El Salvador – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” A good idea without action is as pointless as a spear without a tip”.
” The hardest part of getting to the top is getting through the people at the bottom”.
How stupid is this. I am still trying to get a full refund from Air France (not a good airline), and after sending yet another email to them, I received the following reply-
“Thank you for your Email alerting us to the problem you have been having with your refund .For further investigation , I would like to advise you to contact our Customer Care Department directly.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but there is no direct Email addresse to contact the Customer Relations Department .”
How stupid is it that Air France claim that their Customer Care (and there is a misnomer if ever there was one) do not have an email address. They even answered my email to say that they do not have an email address! And how are people supposed to contact them? What a way to run a business. So if anyone from Air France is reading this, then get your act together.
With a population of around 6 million, El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America. It has frequent earthquakes as it is on the Pacific Ring of Fire, , and also has around 20 volcanoes, with two of them active recently. A large part of its foreign earnings come from residents who work abroad, maninly in the USA. Sadly, it has one of the highest murder rates in the world, with drugs and gangs being prevalent. Spanish is the main language, and the US dollar is used as currency. A popular national dish is the pupusa, which is a corn tortilla, usually hand made and often filled with cheese or beans. Fried plantain is a popular breakfast item, as is deep fried cassava root. The capital, San Salvador, has around 2 million people, and lies in a volcanic valley.
The photo here comes from the town of Naza, El Salvador, the look is either desperation, sadness or hopelessness.
