We leave the lushness of the cordillera behind, zipping through Brazil, meeting unreal real-estate agents on a motorbike and meeting with more Paraguayans in an unchanged rural setting.
A German colony in a lofty part of Paraguay makes for a remarkable comfy concoction.
I am fed up with cycling, yet have to get through the Chaco again. A damp, hot, mosquito infested palmgrove lead me on to, surprisingly enough, more happiness..
After interesting Asuncion it is sticky hot, swarms of mosquitoes cling to me and finding camp spots is hard. I knew it would be, yet I am happy to be back where I am!
