Getting here took a long time...27 hours, but no delays and crying babies were at a minimum. It would've been much faster to fly direct from Miami, but then we couldn't have brought all the bags we did. You'll notice I'm going to write a lot of this post in the plural form, because since I got to Sao Paulo, or even Miami, I've been part of a group! I don't think anyone wants to read about this flight and that layover, so I'll skip ahead to my arrival here!
Almost the whole group arrived in Asuncion together, and the teacher liaison and elementary principal met us at the airport. I got my visa ahead of time in the US so getting through customs was a breeze! All my bags arrived, yay, and we headed over to the hotel. My first impression was of all the green and trees, even from the air. Winter here looks very different from Colorado! Another thing I noticed right away was how warm it was! It was probably in the 70's when we arrived.

Our first day, we were brought to the hotel to drop off our bags, brought to lunch, brought back to the hotel to rest, and then they took us out for dinner. A pretty nice way to start out after the overnight flights and exhausting travel!
|Our lunch place had a ton of ice cream flavors to choose from for dessert!|
