ASUNCIÓN, PARAGUAY’S CAPITAL, hadn’t impressed us on our first visit. Maybe it was since it ended up the region’s coldest winter in 80 years as well as city looked quite depressing. After we’d run our errands — namely, replacing car batteries which have ignited — we quickly drove onto Argentina.
A year later, we were in Asunción with an increase of car issues. With its dodgy tax system, Paraguay is not merely the greatest spot for a search for electronics — specifically Ciudad del Este — and also car tires. This occassion it absolutely was sunny, warm, and nice to get outside. Metropolis emanated pleasant, relaxed vibes. It felt good to be there, and our expected quick border crossing for car parts become a seven-week stay.
This episode taught us it’s essential to supply a place the second chance. Paraguay might not have the headlining attractions of the company\’s neighbors, though the country’s historical and cultural aspects deserve a try in their own right. As well as, among good memories of Paraguay are classified as the open and welcoming encounters we had using the Paraguayan, Guaraní, and Mennonite citizens.
