The first thing I did when I arrived at the city was to go down to waterfront and walk on the left. The river looked very calmed with a dirty brown color (because of the mud) and of course I noticed the seaside cafes where people relaxed drinking coffee.

The waterfront (la costanera in spanish) is a pleasant place to walk on and a lot of locals use it for jogging (it was too hot for me for walking faster that 1km per hour! Ha!) Some other people preferred to play football in some of the parks (Parque Espana, parque de las Colectividades etc) along the way (pic 2). Some others were just there for fishing... (pic 3)

The river is so wide that there some islands inside, you can visit them by boats.

Rio Parana is South America’s second longest river after the Amazon and it runs through Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. The length of the river is 2,500 kilometres and the name Parana means (in tupi language spoken by Tupi Indians of Brazil) “as big as the sea”.
