Winter in Asunción, Paraguay

Here are some pictures of my time in Asunción, the capital of Paraguay, in July and August 2017.


El centro: the old, ramshackle downtown.














The former train station—the last train to operate in Paraguay was in 1999—sits at the center of town, next to Plaza Uruguaya:


The river ferries still chug on:




From the other side of the río Paraguay:


And back to downtown:














Palacio de López:


On board the colectivo:

A variation of it - it's called tereré, which is basically Paraguay's cold version of mate. It's also consumed in a different sort of cup, called a guampa.
