Colors and Towns

Every Little Town you pass through has its specialty. Ita is all about molasses and molasses donuts. Yummy.

Everybody sells the same thing. It´s weird economics but microenterprise is king here and sometimes you´ll see 10 strawberry stands in a row in Aregua - especially during the strawberry festival in August.

Aregua is also known for pottery. Luque focuses on silver wire filigree jewelry and Itaugua on brightly colored lace decoration and clothing. Some towns I pass through are all about fruit and gourds.

Others, really fresh meat.

The colors grab your attention and you just want to stop and buy everything. Make sure you bring a tinted visor or sunglasses since the sky is often cloudless and a piercing blue.

Within about three hours of sunrise or sunset on a day like this, the sun drills holes in your skull. It´s beautiful and I don´t see many days like this in Pittsburgh, but a bit dangerous.

The people are colorful too. This is Tío Dionisio.

Really nice family. Warm and inviting people.
