After 6 days in the countryside it was time to explore the big city and so, we found ourselves in Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay. With limited information, we kept our expectations low so as to not be disappointed, waiting for something, anything to surprise us, and it did.
The clock in the centre of the road told it was 4:30pm. When it flicked over to show the temperature, it told me it was 38 degrees. We were in for a hot few days in the small port city of Concepcion.
The first stop on our Paraguayan adventure was Filadelfia. Located some 450 km from the capital of Asuncion, we planned to visit the Chaco in search of something just a little bit different.
What we found was a quirky little town that has created success from the dust. And, there is a lot of dust!
I love wine. So much so, that when the opportunity to visit Tarija in Bolivia's south presented itself, I just couldn't say no. What we discovered was a sleepy, little town not much different to Western Australia's own Margaret River.
Oh, and loads of great wines of course!
Uyuni itself, doesn't have much to offer in the way of things to see or do. But, just outside this small, little town, is a whole playground of out of this world landscapes, so hauntingly beautiful you may find yourself taking more than 500 photos over a 3 day tour...just like I did!!
