Travel Blogs from Puerto Iguazu
As a group we agreed to spend a free morning doing a quick nip to Paraguay which was only half hour to the boarder. It ticked the box but was essentially just a shopping trip.
Paraguay is meant to be the cheapest country in S America for electronics etc so some of the group bought some bits. As you walk along the street people start off offering you electrics, followed by marihuana ...
... Breakfast was the same as the previous day, and James had learnt his lesson from the tea/coffee fiasco of yesterday and eve managed 2cups!!! The gentleman at checkout was very lovely as ever, helping with the bags ..... Especially great for me as my shoulders are a little pink from yesterday!
