El Salvador erupts

EL Salvador, the "country of volcanoes," celebrates its National Pavilion Day today with an eruption of color, music and dance.

A "flame" spewing volcano rises in the middle of the pavilion, which is themed "Country of Volcanoes" and showcases uses of geothermal energy.

Screens feature the country's spectacular volcanic landscape, arts and culture and use of rich geothermal and hydroelectric resources to create better cities.

It is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America.

The central "volcano" is a huge steel structure with moving, flame-, lava- and smoke-colored membranes - and a chandelier in the center providing molten, erupting light.

The exhibition features pottery and textiles, their designs inherited from Mayan culture.

Visitors can buy high-quality coffee grown in volcanic soil.
