Happy Independence Day to my adopted country!


Paraguay  (from Wikipedia)The country is named after the river that runs through the center of the country, from north to south. There are at least four versions for the origin of the river's name. The literal translation from Guaraní is Para = of many varieties; Gua = from or belonging to or place; Y = water or river or lake.

Thanks for the reminder! Ramon told me the other day that it was coming up, but we both forgot about it after that! Are you seeing any celebrations? Have a nice day and eat some fresh chipa for me!
