It’s always fun to make connections from back home. It’s especially fun when those connections can happen in person. Face to face. Elbow to elbow.
We were lucky enough to make one of those connections this weekend when we traveled to the capital city of Asunción and met up for lunch and some Mercado 4 strolling with an old friend from our church back home, Ben. Ben is volunteering for 10 months at an organization in Asunción that helps people with AIDS.
This is an incredibly poor quality photo taken by my trusty cell phone, but it was all I had to document this 8th Street reunion, so it’ll do until the next time we meet up!
Ben is having a great experience so far and it was incredibly refreshing to share our reflections, opinions and challenges with each other. Oh, and of course we all practiced our limited Guaraní. We did all this chatting over a delicious Korean meal to boot.
To the rest of our 8th Street family, it looks like Paraguay is kinda the place to be right now, so start booking those plane tickets. Can’t wait to see you all soon!
