Areguá: Cerro Koi and Celebrity Couples.

February 22, 2012


Located about 35 minutes outside of Asuncion is the city of Areguá. Known for its strawberry festival in August, Areguá is also notable for the Cerro Koi hill. Nestled up in the CK is a distinctive rock formation site with honeycomb-like sandstones only found in two other places in the world (Canada and South Africa).

As you enter the park, a police officer either hops in your car or accompanies you by motorcycle, and shows you around. Really though, he is there less as a tour guide and more as protection from robbers, who apparently hide in the underbrush and prey on unsuspecting visitors. Fun times.

Fortunately, no one jumped us (this time), and we got our fill of red clay mud, overgrown weeds, broken glass, and even a little love message from B’s secret admirer in Paraguay. Check it.

Look who I found in Paraguay!
