Our trip to Carmelo Peralta, part 2

If anyone of you is wondering where Carmelo Peralta is, you can check out the map below. We live close to Filadelfia and Carmelo is on the paraguayan side of the river, across from Porto Mortiño (on the brazilian side) Usually the trip takes about 3 hours, but because the roads were so bad, it took us 4,5 hours.

As soon as we got there, our little fisherman (Cindy) went down to the river with her fishing gear she got for Christmas. We didn't fish anything big enough to save, and because it's off season, we couldn't fish from a boat.

There was this pesky duck that was running around the grounds. It was so curious, it almost checked out our guiso (meat and noodle stew) in the "olla".

The house we rented was very sparse in furniture and comfort. :P The kitchen didn't have a countertop to work on, so we had to do everything over the sink.

The girls loved spending time looking over the water. Thats a lot of water for a Chaqueña.

 Someday I'd like to book a cruise on a river boat like this. But it needs to have air conditioning, mosquito netting and internet access.:)

Thats all for today, but I still have some great pictures to show you all next time.

Have a great week!
