Where is San Lorenzo?

Post by leilistories on Wed Aug 04, 2010 4:41 am

Something that I decided to post because procrastination is my friend >.>

So, I noticed a bunch of people have been wondering which country San Lorenzo was in... which is, well, important considering that there are a few episode topics on Arnold's parents. xD

So, if you look at this map...



You'll see that not only is San Lorenzo along the coast, but there's also a river (Rio Claro) running through it.

So, after doing research, I realized that there's a San Lorenzo on the border of the Gulf of Mexico, and there's a river named Rio Claro somewhere around the Gulf of Mexico, too...



The problem is, according to Google Maps, and as you'll see in the map that I poorly made above, the Rio Claro is kinda not very near San Lorenzo, but several miles northern to it. @_@ Sadly, I can't clearly read the other landmarks on Miles' map. It's the closest I can find, though. More sudden internet discoveries on San Lorenzo would be great.

Because of the jungles and Mayan temples, one possible place could be Guatemala.

GAH! I wish they would just tell us!

It's in southern Mexico, part of Veracruz province. Archaeologically, it's known primarily as one of the sites that harbored the Olmec people (the culture that existed from roughly 1500-1000 B.C.). They're the ones who carved the massive stone heads. The Maya would supersede them although they stayed more into the Yucatan peninsula as well as what's now Guatemala and Belize. http://www.crystalinks.com/olmec.html

lduncan is correct. There's also an article about Arnold's San Lorenzo on the Hey Arnold! Wiki. ^ ^

San Lorenzo (Guatemala)

Wikipedia: San Lorenzo is a municipality in the San Marcos department of Guatemala.It was found in 1812 year by Spanish families.This is the birthplace of Justo Rufino Barrios-President of Guatemala.His native house is declared as a National Heritage.

But remember, constantly traveling to different parts of Central America, to find the ingredients of the medicine, so it is possible that if you travel to "Rio Claro" Mexico, only to find some ingredients.

That makes me think that perhaps that is one of the reasons why something might happen to them because of constant travel in search of medicine.

Pero hay que recordar que viajaban constantemente a diversas partes de Centro America, para encontrar los ingredientes de los remedios, por lo que es posible que si viajaran hasta "Rio Claro" Mexico, solo para buscar algun ingrediente.

Lo que me hace pensar que quizas esa sea una de las razones por las que les pudo suceder algo, debido a los viajes constantes en busqueda de medicina.

In other words, "River of Darkness".
