**I made this video 3 years ago, but only shared it to Facebook…so I wanted to post it for all you guys here on YouTube! Please excuse the fast paced editing and shaky camera — I was a newbie back then**
HOLA FROM PARAGUAY –Did you know their first language is NOT Spanish here? It’s called Guaraní!
If you are like me 2 days ago, then you know nothing about Paraguay — so my goal in this video is to introduce and open you mind to this hidden subtropical nation (and culture) in 3 minutes!!
If I am being 100% honest with you, I had very low expectations going into this trip… Most people I know who have been to Paraguay, told me it’s boring and not worth my time to visit. Well, I was proven wrong! I love going to places that most people don’t visit. It excites me more than anything else.
I was lucky enough to meet up with 2 friends who reached out on Instagram, Niko and his uncle Hernan, who picked me up from the airport and drove me all around Asunción and the countryside for 2 days. We ate amazing food, walked around the city, went to some markets and more — and it was a lot of fun! I learned a lot about the most homogeneous culture in South America.
Here are 8 things I’ve discovered about Paraguay, that you might not know.
