i thought i would have another look at my photos from tanarandy after complaining about the lack of successful shots. i ended up pleasantly surprised to find that a few more came out than i had first thought. i think this shot is probably one of the best in terms of setting the scene and atmosphere. all that is missing are the torches that people were holding in their hands - however it does include a young paraguayan girl carrying a flask of terere. this is similar to mate but served cold, which makes more sense to me in the south american heat. like mate in argentina, everyone in paraguay seems to drink this and therefore awkwardly carry it around in a huge flask. i'm not knocking it though - it's the shit when it comes to hangovers - a medicine which was regularly administered during my time in paraguay.
