Aregua

We recently had a school holiday, and our mentors arranged a bus and trip for us to nearby Aregua! It was only about 45 minutes away, but a world away from the big city of Asuncion. I LOVED it! It was really nice to get out of the city, see a little bit of the countryside, and walk around and shop in Aregua. It is kind of an artisan/hippie town situated on a big lake. It is also strawberry season, so you can sample and buy every possible strawberry concoction!

There is lots of shopping to be done in Aregua, especially if you are in the market for pots.

Lunch outside in the garden...beautiful!

Strawberry festival!

My buys for the day!
