Just one afternoon...

Sarah and I were visiting Iguassu Falls and Foz do Iguacu this summer, and when we were planning the trip, we looked at how close Paraguay appeared to be. Since Sarah and I are both avid VirtualTourists, we knew that this would be a great opportunity to pick up another blue country on our map. So without much of a plan, and with very little research, we decided to hop the border and enter Paraguay!

We quickly learned of the folly here, and turned around immediately, but check out the pages here to find out why!

    With regard to your local customs tip, it gets worse in Asuncion. There I saw a woman defecating in the middle of a busy shopping street. Not very nice.

    Interesting info on the border crossing into Paraguay. Hopefully some things will change there soon.

    You are a "whiz" at writing local customs tips on places like this. Your tip on the tax-free shopping could also go under "tourist traps."
