Working and living a daily life in a country is not comparable at all with having a holiday at the same place (even a long one). On a holiday, I may (try to) read local newspapers to understand the political situation, but I will (normally) not go to the doctor, pay taxes, have to deal with corruption.
Those sketches are made with India ink on paper, based on the pictures that my Paraguayan friend Olga made a week ago in San Bernardino, a small touristic town on the shores of the Ypacaraí Lake, about 50 km from the capital (thanks again for the pics, Olga). Enjoy!
(BTW: I wish I could win the lottery to take the next plane to Asunción).
