Ciudade del Este` Fronteira ..Border Brazil and Paraguay,get you're entry Visa in Brazil..cost a lot in Paraguay getting it.
many have asked me, what has changed since the time you traveled Paraguay?
and while I have always stayed close to South America, have still Friends there and from other Travellers..great pages here on VT,some has changed for the good, but some, like the Drug trafficing has become a real bad hassle, as well as the crime that goes with it
for the Guaranie's..they still struggle to make ends meat, and this is realy sad and devastating.

Fun Alternatives: stay positiv and happy travelling
