The chaos in the earth.

Ciudad del Este is in the Paragayan border, close to Brasil and Argentina, near Iguazu Falls, one of the biggest in the world.
Ciudad del Este is like a huge market, you can find everything here, from sport shoes to sun glasses, and everything perfectly falsified. Nothing has a fix price and everything is for sale.
There are some stores also, which are suposed to be more trustable, but not to much anyway.
The city is chaothic, people going up and down, cars and motorbikes everywhere going quick, and street vendors talking to you, everything is dirty and people drinking mate continiously.
They ofered us virgin girls for 60 reais and any kind of drug. *:-|

Smuggling

Coming back to Campinas y was the only one in the bus who wasn't a merchant. The bus was full of people with huge suitcases full of.... anything, going back their Brasilian cities where they would sell it more expensive. My eventual bus mate told me that he does this trip twice a week, more 60 hours by bus per week. Incredible!!
He told me that most of the shops and stores belong to chineese, Hong Kong and muslim people, and that it was comon to be a 3 or 4 deaths every night because of the mafias. It was frigtening!!
But it's normal, actually, if you go to Ciudad del Este by bus from Foz de iguazu there are no controls in the border. I coulden't belive that!!
The chaos in the eath exists and I have been there, people knows that like... Ciudad del Este.
