San Francisco to Asunción, Paraguay

Duke and I are off on another adventure. This time we are planning to visit Paraguay, Argentina , Uruguay and Chili. After three flights and more than twenty four hours of traveling we arrived at our hotel in Asunción, Paraguay at about one am this morning. I slept like a log once my head hit the pillow.

Paraguay is a land locked country of about seven million people located on the Tropic of Capricorn. It borders Bolivia, Brazil, and Argentina. Today we went walking to check out Asunción.

We checked out an exhibition in the old train station.

We bought lunch from the vendors nearby,

and walked around the government buildings.

This is the Palacio de López.

Spain got us in the habit of having a drink around five. Today we sampled the local beer,

We ate dinner in our hotel. They have a dinner time like the Europeans here. The restaurant opened at eight pm.
