Getting started in Paraguay

Aquiring essentials to survive

I woke up out of my fatigue induced coma because some chicken on steroids were having a party at around 8:00 am. After breakfast we headed to the Bonima, the supermarket around the corner. Headed… well not exactly. The problem is I forget when I listen, but most of the time I don’t even listen. And only I had been told. We had no clue how to get there. We knew it wasn’t far but we managed to walk in all wrong directions before we found it. Truth by elimination does work 🙂

We even found a bank next door to the Bonima so the Euro Problem was solved. After discovering that bags are not allowed into banks we left for the Bonima. There we bought basics like Yebra Mate, Coconut Shampoo and a bit of food. We headed back to the apartment.

About 100 meters before we reached “home” we saw these bikers next to the road standing in the shade. Norman was carrying our Photocamera so they immediately smilied and started shouting “Photo, Photo”. Ofcourse we obliged and started communicating with google-translate. That was really funny! We translate english to spanish and show them the mobile, one of them takes the mobile and translates spanish to english 😀 Having exchanged numbers we were happy to have made our first local friends and went back home to take a dip in the pool. After that we tasted some nice herbs that we organized with a little help to our new “Photo Photo” friends 😀 Yes! Nice!
