The hotel we are in has cable TV. The cable here in Ciudad del Este is fascinating. I do not understand much of what I see on the TV but it entertains me greatly!
We have the regular Paraguayan networks as well as CNN en Espanol and Univision. We also get VeneVision from Venezuela! I don't care for that channel, but I enjoy hearing the quick talking Venezuelan accents. We also have Telesur which is Chavez' idea of a South American news channel. Boring...
Since we are just across the river from Brazil we also have several Portuguese channels. Due to the German population here we have a few German channels as well.
We have a couple of English movie channels and an Indian channel.
We also have 3 or 4 Chinese networks, with Spanish subtitles. A great way to exerciser the brain! There seems to be a Korean channel, too.
We must have 5 or 6 Arabic networks, including Al Jazeera. It is interesting to see the women reporting the news in their head coverings and the men in turbans, as on one of the channels.
We entertain ourselves by watching these foreign channels and each of us picks a different character, push the mute button, and we make up our own story line, doing the voices of our characters. It's a riot... ok, maybe you have to be here to appreciate it.
Tomorrow we head to Argentina and to see the Falls. I am very excited about that!
