We leave the Cerro Acahay and start our journey towards Yvycuí. Although we are not far from Asunción, this route, an hour and a half from the capital, leaves most of the villages behind and hardly any traffic on the road. I can stop the car and calmly walk down the street to take photos. But it’s hot and there’s a strong wind blowing like a hair dryer.
The landscape is very flat. Only a few green hills rise out of nowhere. Cattle graze in the long grass in the distance. It’s an idyllic picture. A local commented that Paraguayan beef is among the best in the world. It doesn’t seem to be just patriotism. At least we see incredible areas that are available to few cows and give them all the rest to graze in peace.
