Our last mentoring meeting involved renting a van and driving to the nearby town of Yaguaron. The main reason we went there was that the mountain of Yaguaron is believed to be the birthplace of the 7 Mitos or myths. These myths were created to explain the unexplainable-like pregnancy out of wedlock and why you can never find your dang keys. For more info on the myths, read here. Let me tell you, those are some wild guys, especially Kurupi. Anyway it is also a nice place to hike around, see the view, and have a picnic lunch.
Once we got to the top there was plenty of time to wander around and explore. I did some of that and some relaxing too. It was a *perfect* beautiful spring day and I was happy to be out of the city.
It was a great, relaxing day. It only took an hour or two to get there, but it felt like the edge of civilization. I guess it is a popular place for people to buy land and build "ranchos" to enjoy the slow life. I crashed during the van ride home, which I think is a sign of a good trip!
|OK, fellow Coloradans, I know it's not much, but it's the highest elevation I've been here in Paraguay!|
|I loved all the palm trees on top.|
|Overlooking the town.|
|Climbing up the bell tower was not allowed. Bummer.|
