There is so much going on lately. It is uncommonly cold in Paraguay, houses are not prepared for this cold and you literally freeze everywhere, outside and inside the houses.
Cold is a rare occasion in Paraguay, on the streets you see people wearing the weirdest cold weather clothes, un matching clothing, old fashion vintage coats and jackets or 2 or 3 sweatshirts one on top of the other.
Rain and cold (and gray skies) is not my favorite season, I think I had too much of it in Seattle, but that is the risk of coming to Paraguay this time of the year.
During a winter time a visit to downtown could be very depressive, you can see old neoclassic building in complete ruins, buildings that in other times were houses of the richest or important society people…now they are just ruins of better times.
Downtown Asuncion sometimes and more with this weather seems a ghost town, a town forgotten in time were the paint is faded and the walls are falling apart, where you can see the pass of the time thru its architecture…most without style, marking the different times.
Far away from it’s total decadence, in Asuncion you can see so many things that are hilarious, old bars mostly painted in baby blue, aqua green or candy pink that still preserve their original elements, that have never been touched with modernity.
Asuncion is by far the most beautiful city in the world (for me) and thanks God, beauty and love are subjective.
