Getting to Know Paraguay

... happiest people on the planet (Panama came in second, Guatemala third, while Serbians were in last place, the most miserable). I, in fact, have noticed a general aura of serenity here, a "satisfied with the moment" feel, which thankfully seems to be contagious. Every person with whom we came into contact in Asuncion has been especially kind, calm and helpful. Our family, since our arrival to the Asuncion airport in the middle of the night, four days ago, has remained calm, ...

... I guess it wasn't open to the public...that night I met up with Frankie (from home) and her bf James where we had bangers and mash for dinner and few caipirinhas. It was a lovely evening of catching up and learning how their life in Paraguay has been. The next day Frankie and I went to a museum in memory of the prisoners who were tortured under dictatorship Stroessner who was in power for 35 years. No one knew about the torture until 1993 so 3/4 years after the dictatorship had ...

... it really couldn't have been nicer. We arrived after 10 and found a meal all ready for us..a 2 bottle evening ( there were 3 of us). A little bit of culture in a short trip to visit one of the many Jesuit Missions found on the east side of SA. The one at Trinidad is one of the best restored and gives a good idea of the scale of the enterprise. In fact the Jesuits were so good that the King of Spain expelled them in 1767 ...

We set off for Asuncion after breakfast, stopping only in the steering heat for a snack lunch under the welcome shade of a roadside tree. We had a good journey, arriving early afternoon. Following the unpacking of the 4x4, some of us made a hasty trip to the Internet Cafe down the road to check and send e-mails etc. ...

    Rooms are really outdated

    We stayed at this hotel as part of a Toucan tour and the lobby is beautiful but the actual rooms are really outdated and our room kind of smelled. The fridge and air conditioning unit was really loud and the AC didn't cool the whole room. The bathroom was horrible. Other than the room, the breakfast was decent and the computers in the lobby was nice. The area is pretty central. I wouldn't stay here again because of the room but if you're just using it to sleep and not relax in, then it's adequate.
