    So here's the last episode of our Paraguayan mini series!
    In this episode we're leaving Kitsos and we're getting on a Land Rover, Alexandra is chasing away the chickens and a snake is blocking our way...



    What do you think?
    Have you visited Paraguay yet?
    Alright, I promise i'll try to stop talking about Parauay now and enjoy other countries, too :lol3

    Yeah, Paraguay sucks. All those unfriendly people you keep meeting, the terrible food and one tourist trap after another, lol!!! To answer your question, I was there for about 30 minutes. From the Brazilian side of Foz do Iguaçu you can walk across a bridge into a street market where they sell everything, including motorcycle helmets for $15!!! I wanted one because in the city of Foz do Iguaçu they had motorcycle taxis. Since I don't ride (well in my dreams I do) I thought it would be fun to hop on one of those taxis but I didn't want to wear the provided and probably smelly and dirty helmet they give you. After watching those moto taxis zip around I decided that even though I don't ride, I'd probably be safer if I rented a motorcycle and hit the road myself :-) So basically I'm seeing Paraguay through the lense of your camera. Keep the vids coming!!!

    I love the videos! If you come to the United States, the first beer is on me, or whatever coffee you want.

    Sorry for the late reply but I've been busy trying to break-in yet another new piston...

    Yes, Paraguay REALLY SUCKS!!! You can see it on the videos :rofl

    Though they have very cheap stuff as you mentioned. Worths a visit just for shopping!
    Anyway, if you have to jump on a mototaxi again in the future then consider buying a buff. That's what I do :brow :lol2

    We'll keep the videos coming (hopefully sometime in the near future because we also have to travel a bit).

    Cheers :beer

    We drink both coffee and beer, so depending on the time we'll arrive, we'll let you know :lol2
