Yesterday was awesome. We didn’t celebrate my birthday because of our neighbours. We really wanted them to attend, but out of personal reasons they refuse to attend birthday parties. So instead we had a “party” 😉
Our landlord, Thomas, bought meat and drinks, his family made potatoe- and green salad, Norman and I prepared fruit salad and a melon. Location was Thomas’ Veranda, Guests where the residents and Thomas’ entire family here, which ws about 15 people of all ages.
In my whole life I do not recall seeing such a grill. Okay, the grill was normal, but the loads of meat on it was breathtaking. At least for a meat lover 😀 I hate one plate, then I was stuffed 😛
The thing that I like to recall most about the evening where the children. They were gorgeous! The sparkles in their eyes, the impartiality in their movements, the joy they brought to just through their laughter.
When the evening neared its end we performed a few songs and
received acknowlegement, but the crowd really started to get into it once we played their requests, County Roads and Knocking on Heavens Door. That was so cool! I grew up loving Guns n Roses and suddenly this Paraguayan dude asks us to play something from one of my favorite bands!
After the guest left, we had some time alone with the landlord and a handshake was made. In Paraguay a handshake concludes a contract.
This is now ours.
After five days in Paraguay.
