Travel Blogs from Asuncion
Hey All, It´s been a while since my last letter. I leave you from where we last met in Buenos Aires where since then, I´ve been on the go. Bus to Asuncion My bus ride from Buenos Aires to Asuncion was great. I took the luxury bus with seats that recline. We spent 17 hours on the road and waiting an hour just to cross the border. I ended up playing …
... at best. When we returned, it was like coming home to family and the conversations flowed where in the past they had often skidded to an awkward halt.
We have used very little Guaraní in our site, which is not to say that it is uncommon to hear in our community but that we have felt more comfortable speaking in Spanish. Most people understand Spanish because nearly all of the TV programming is in Spanish, but with their friends and family ...

From Asuncion I headed to Concepcion, the second biggest city in Paraguay but with a completely different vibe. I stayed on a granja (farm) 16 km outside the side that was run by a German and his Paraguayan wife. Tubing down the river, taking the bike to town (which can be murderous in this heat) and talking to the many exotic animals on the farm I spent the following days in all peace and ...

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We stayed at this hotel as part of a Toucan tour and the lobby is beautiful but the actual rooms are really outdated and our room kind of smelled.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