killing time
those that know me, and a few that don't, know that i'm not really one for making plans. perhaps that's part of the reason why my ticket to go travelling was one-way and not return. in terms of a plan whilst travelling, it could be broken down as wanting to go to every country in south america. having started in brazil, and performed (very wobbly) semi circle by going down to uruguay and argentina and then up argentina and chile, i found myself in south bolivia. literally not metaphysically. here i was faced with a choice: to paraguay or to not paraguay. i think i can say with confidence that i'm yet to meet any travellers in this continent that have been to paraguay. it seems to be a country that everyone misses out, including those that write the guidebooks. whilst this would seem to indicate that there is no good reason to go there, for me it makes it more intriguing. plus the completest inside of me would be annoyed at a paraguayian shaped hole if i went to all the other countries. so i booked a bus ticket and went for it. well, i booked a bus ticket to villamontes in bolivia, one of the places you can cross the border from. that bus arrived at 4:30am and i learnt the next bus to paraguay departs at 2:00am. this gives me over 20 hours to kill before the 18 hour bus ride. at the time of writing i've finished two (already half-finished) books and pretty much drained my ipod battery. i need to find more creative ways to kill time.

this is one of the lagunas that we visited on a drive between chile and bolivia. i think it's called laguna honda. oh and i flipped the photo 180 degrees - for no better reason other than because i could. here's the original
