The Streets of Ciudad del Este

My photos are not great as they were taken from a moving car. I wish you could hear the sounds of this city. Every few feet you will hear a different language. Spanish, German, Guarani, Chinese, Arabic, and Portuguese are all swirling around in the air. It can make you dizzy!



Down Town



Sidewalk vendors



Busy and crowded, not to mention noisy!




Hammocks and luggage.



Deliveries.




The Mosque

It´s too full and too crazy for my taste, but you can get some really good deals there. I hope the rest of the city is a lot more "normal"....
