Inaugurated so the palace has 105 rooms but we’re going to visit just the four main ones in the entrance this is the entrance uh normally but since it is a big thing right there we just mov the entrance another I see because of a construction happening or what is there

Bus was donated by Spain in the year 1546 huning when s Salvador was named as a city s Salvador was the Second City to be named in nor Central America I see what was the first one then in Guatemala City of Guatemala I see okay yeah so

We’re going to beit the four main ones okay uh wait Palace was ril because of the of the taxes or love of SC and the president who inaugurated the palace in the year of 1911 was pres suddenly is the only who murder while he was in the government and he was murder from

The we will I will join the englishing tour laulan morzan La un alator what are the names that are up here are they cities or squares and the let’s say the states of our country states of your country okay is divided in 14 Department 14 okay and those are the

Names I see great and we are in yes of course thank you and I don’t know just couple of days ago that was right there when he made the speech who was the president yeah okay right there in the balcony I see it’s quite spectacular so I I say you that I one

105 rooms in the fall we’re going to visit just the foring one let’s continue and it means that there are1 rooms that are the secondary ones we can see some of them right here they are closed because there are still maintainance the restoration processes but all those little rooms used to be

Offices of the government as the Ministries currently So there is the National Palace and I hadn’t realized that it was right next to the main square and the cathedral there so I went full circle there now I kind of screwed up and uh forgot to put another battery for my camera in my backpack here I thought

There was one in there I have two spares but I had kind of emptied out my backpack in order to have less stuff not really have any uh valuables in the pack so it’s like super light not much in it just the Basic Essentials but I miss getting another

Battery in there and so I used up the battery and uh the only thing that I have left to film with is my phone which is not good but I was about ready to wrap it up anyway so this is going to be the end of the uh tour of San

Salvador very interesting lots to see in this Central Historical Area great to learn about the uh history of the country and the government through the tour of the National Palace there but also you got an idea for those who might have been curious how long can I film for with one battery

There you go that was one batteries worth and it was like 45 minutes of shooting so you get a lot with this uh camera of mine from One battery but usually I have another one just in case because I often shoot more than that so I will definitely

Correct that in the future but uh I think I’m going to head on back to my room get out of the heat although there’s a nice uh kind of cool breeze at the moment but at least we got a good idea of San Salvador I am looking forward

To getting out of the uh City day after tomorrow although I will just be going to another city Santa Ana but uh looking forward to the volcano hike and uh seeing more of this very interesting country and we got another square with a lot of music happening so I had to show

This let’s try to figure out which Square this is maybe this is libertad 1916 Paris vcan 1921 this is definitely the musical Gathering Place Good stuff nice music let’s check out the other one and so I didn’t show any food in this video I had some of my cookies for breakfast or like around 12 noon and that kind of filled me up so I will get some dinner later okay not happening here at the

Moment so I might go back to the same restaurant near my room that I showed the last video or uh actually what I did last night after having dinner because that was kind of early I got hungry again later in the evening and I used Uber Eats and ordered some

Tacos so I’ll either go to that other restaurant or order something to be delivered but uh I will definitely be showing more food in the coming videos all right time to uh grab another Uber get back to my room take a break there we go confirmation libertad Liberty Square Another I I He
