As I was stepped out of the car and onto the streets of Santa Tecla, El Salvador, I heard blaring music coming from behind a wall and I wanted to check it out. Once inside, I discovered a miniature carnival complete with food, rides, games, and locals. I walked over to one of the food stalls and noted what was being sold: enrollados de yuca (yucca chips), tostadas de plátanos (plantain chips), maiz (corn), and churros españoles. I purchased a bag of plantain chips covered in curtido (Salvadoran cabbage salad) and made my way around the rest of the carnival.
As I was walking, I noticed a guy making churros españoles and I decided to capture the process on film.
