Imagine leaving Miami Florida in a brand new pickup truck fitted with a small camper and driving to the tip of South America and back. Every day of this two year sojourn was filled with excitement, near calamities, and adventure. The couple’s goal to visit every museum, archeological site, village and sea port is detailed in daily journals that have useful information, insightful commentary, and stories that range from pathetic to hilarious. This series takes readers with a yen for knowing the obscure corners of Latin America or natives who migrated to America seeking reminiscences on the road and on the path through dozens of countries and hundreds of towns. Travelers will find the vignettes and descriptions useful as they plan trips to these out of the way places with tips on what not to miss and what to avoid. This excerpt is their adventures in Paraguay. The duo explores Asuncion, the Chaco, everything called Stroesner and take a side trip by passenger ferry from Concepcion.
