Street cleaner - Ataco, El Salvador

I passed this lovely man whilst casually strolling the streets of Ataco, a village along the Ruta de las Flores ("Route of the Flowers") in El Salvador.

Although, I must say, I wasn't very surprised to see him with a machete: most men in the country of El Salvador walk the streets with a machete in hand. And I once saw a man peel an orange with his machete.
