We stayed at this hotel as part of a Toucan tour and the lobby is beautiful but the actual rooms are really outdated and our room kind of smelled.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.

When we reached the Paraguay border everyone had to get off the bus, take their luggage off while they ran ...

The man, Juanjo, said he’d love to show me around some great places in the countryside if only I were staying through the weekend.

... time but Florencio Villamayor is the east-west artery through the slum of La Chacarita, home to an estimated 20,000 of Asuncion’s poorest residents.
La Chacarita was featured in a New York Times article last April noting the vast income inequality in Paraguay despite the country’s 13% economic growth rate, the highest of any country in the Americas. The Times reported that grandmothers wade through raw sewage in the labyrinthine of La ...
... with two Swedish guys, Joel and Rasmus and a Belgian guy, Hidde. The topic of conversation turned to Christmas, with us each talking about typical Christmas traditions in our homeland. After one such anicdote, Rasmus turned to me with a distressed look on his face, "Hey man, but, you still have Santa Claus right!?" Thinking that this was simply lost in translation, I laughed it off, yet his confused, almost frightened, face remained fixed on me. "How ...
... and everyone had to exit the bus to be stamped out of Paraguay and into Argie land. This seemed pretty simple as the exit and entrance booths were right next to each other. We saw though that the bus was unloading the luggage, no surprise, but then men who we assumed worked for the bus company came and asked us something and then took our bags off to the side. As if this wasn't enough of a distraction the man who stamped us into Argentina then kept our ...
