Roughing it up in Paraguay

So we are back to a border town and it shows. Not so much interesting stuff going on here...

'The' sights here are the Jesuit ruins located a bit out of town. We visited one of them (there are two), Trinidad, which was a bit boring...

Here's some pics from the ruins:

Soon they are about to release a damm that will cover a part of town with water. That part is filled with shopping stalls stuffed with all kinds of nick nacks including really cheap vcd videos. We did some movie shopping there and were lucky to get chipa bread right from the oven. It was really tasty!

We have started our Tereré career. Bought a termos, a cup and a sipping thing and got some Mate mixed with mint. So now we are good to go! Tastes reeeeeally great! :)
