We made it safely to Asuncion, Paraguay last Tuesday. Our initial impression is a positive one, although Paraguay is obviously different than the United States and will require some acclimation. I have been offline for the past few days and have intermittent Internet access since I arrived. I may not have access at home for about a week. As it is, the Internet here is relatively slow with top speeds of 256-512 kbps (no, not megabytes, kilobytes). I wanted to post a short entry to let you know that we’re alive and doing OK here in Paraguay. I will try to write again soon.
