We stayed at this hotel as part of a Toucan tour and the lobby is beautiful but the actual rooms are really outdated and our room kind of smelled.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

... incident, I'd once again managed to miss the check-in for my flight by a matter of minutes. If only I hadn't gone to that machine. I was directed to the desk of despair at which the other sad-sacks who'd missed their flights stood gazing at their shoes. At least at Heathrow they booked me on another flight at no extra charge. No such customer service at Guarulhos. 800 Reals and the proposed flight wasn't until Wednesday. I rudely declined.

Departed the hotel at 12:34 p.m. Ugh, I stopped to take a photo a few blocks away and realized there's no memory card in my camera! I had to walk five minutes back to my hotel room to retrieve it, then set out again at 12:48.

... 8217;s largest slum. Quite a bizarre contrast.
Curiously I saw a naval ship anchored in the bay. I’d later see in my guidebook that this is the Canonera Humaita Naval Museum. A naval museum! About the last thing I’d expect to see in a landlocked country!
I walked west along Avenida Costanera. Paraguay’s presidential palace, Palacio de los Lopez, was now in clear view on the hill back toward the city. Quite a pretty building! ...
... shift. They're looking to implement new systems of planning, assessment and evaluative practice. My challenge then is to be part of that change, and work to use any relevant skills and training I have to further the process.
Now the bad news...
My knee which has been affecting me since Santiago, has continued to be a source of worry for me in Paraguay. I'm increasingly certain that it will need a consultation, scan and possibly even another operation. I had wrestled with ...
... arrival time so as not to miss connections. We hopped in a cab and hoped that the hostel we'd heard about, El Jardin had beds available, as being a snap decision we'd not had an opportunity to book anywhere. Nellie isn't a big fan of just arriving, but I managed to convince her it would be fine. The hostel was pretty cool, but I'll leave it to Nell as she'll enjoy filling in the gaps. Having arrived late, we decided to head to the local pub for some dinner and beer, I ordered in ...
