Safe and Sound + Pizza!

June 25, 2012

There has been a lot of political unrest in Paraguay the past couple of weeks.  There were 17 people gunned down by police in an area in a town called Curugaty, by the Brazil border,.

For about two days, everybody was tense here in Paraguay because of the incident in Curuguaty and the impeachment of Paraguay’s President Lugo.  In Asuncion, there were tons of protests and a several riots.  The leaders of the mission told us on Friday if we saw anything suspicious or if we saw large groups of people gathering to go straight home.

Pres. Lugo was officially impeached and there was a peaceful transfer of power to his vice president.  Everything now is back to normal.  No more violence. No more danger.  Completely tranquilo.

I know Curuguaty.   I always had a “layover” there when I would travel from  Puente Kyjha to Santanì.  The bus always stopped there to let passengers off and on and to refuel.

On a lighter note,  today we are going to a place called Eusebio Ayala.  Evidently there is a man there that lived in New York for twenty years and makes legitimate American style pizzas. We’re pretty stoked as we haven’t had a real pizza in two years!!!

It is cool now in Paraguay.  At night it is cold.   By the time I leave it will be full blown out winter just in time to get back for the August in Kansas.   🙂
