Paraguay in pictures

  1. "Cow-sual"
  2. This dog followed me everywhere for an hour or so
  3. Her name is Luna and she's wonderful
  4. This is Aaron - he's 8 and a baller at fútbol. He's also super excited about pencils
    I never thought about how long it takes for operation Christmas child to get to places but apparently awhile. I also never thought I'd get to see this part of the process and it was truly heartwarming. These boxes really do magic in kids hearts
  5. This was delicious - and about $2
  6. Legitimately the best hot chocolate I've ever had
    It was about 80 cents
  7. Really pretty church
  8. My little friend
    The dogs here don't ever get pet so they follow me around everywhere when I pet them - I love it
  9. Museum from Jesuit ruins
    That's carved wood
  10. The insanity that insued was crazy
  11. This is where the tornado came through
  12. "Smile life is beautiful"
  13. I got to feed a monkey
    Look close and he has a baby. Also side note they dropped a banana peel on my face
  14. Because who can say they've taken a selfie feeding a wild monkey
  15. So freaking good - filet mignon for $8
  16. Jesuit ruins
  17. Grandpas gunning it at 2 mph
  18. This is right before we got kicked out for climbing up
  19. Selfie with a chicken
  20. Different place
  21. Beautiful
  22. These were classrooms
  23. Standing up on the back of a truck on the highway
  24. In between mixing concrete
  25. "I will learn stories to tell you, I will invent new words to tell you, in every way, that I love you more than anybody else"
  27. A normal sighting
  28. This is what the people have been living in while they try to rebuild their homes
  29. Hammock/blanket making
  30. It was like a street of blanket/hammock making people
    Side note: I think i saw the best sunset I've seen in my life (this isn't it) but It would have been impossible to take a picture of it
  31. Welcome to Brazil
  32. I have never stayed in a nicer place
  33. It's only like $50 a night
  34. First starfish fruit
  35. Like whaaaaaat
  36. The sun was blinding but this is claudia and she's awesome
  37. They're called Iguaçau falls and they stretch for miles
    It's considered a wonder of the world
  38. Butterflies were eeeevvverryywhere I felt like I was in a garden
  39. Sorry I have an obnoxious amount of pictures of this
  40. Literally paradise
  41. Side note we took a boat and went underneath one and it was awesome
  42. The things in the background are called quatiz
  43. The equivalent of the white house
  44. The emergency room at the Public hospital
  45. Festival de st. Juan
  46. Bienvenidos al ciclovia
  47. El colectivo- aka the bus system. It's real close and personal but dirt cheap. The drivers are normal people who bought a bus and got a license kinda like uber but not personalized
    People have jobs where they hop on and off busses selling fruit, drinks, chipa, socks or playing music for tips. This guy jammed out for us for like 10 minutes
  48. El escondido "the hide-out"
    Campsite or fun place to go for the day
  49. The water was so freaking cold but a good time
  50. Ivan repelling - pretty low key but hey it was included so why not
  51. Third world zip-lining
  52. I'm laughing because Ivan was trying to scare me and telling me how there are no helmets in Paraguay...not for bikes or motorcycles or the fact that there's helmets here is not a good sign
  53. "En mi locura encontré mi libertad"
    In my insanity I found my freedom
  54. Because you can take selfies on a zip line in Paraguay
  55. Just chilling waiting for some jacked dude to army crawl out to get me
  56. At least the view was nice
  57. I really think I could have stayed here forever - the view, tereré, and some good company - what more do you need
  58. Phot creds to Diego
