Think of Asuncion as Quito but with lighter skinned people addicted to drinking mate. There is not much to do here and I don’t know why I came.
Change of hooking up rating: 3 out of 5 ?
Plaza de los Heroes has handicrafts, there are some old colonial buildings by the bay, and Confiteria Bolsi on Estrella and Alberdi has a nice diner vibe for breakfast and lunch.
Rodizio on Palma 591 near 15 de Agosta is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in South America with their delicious buffet.
I did not get a chance to sample the nightlife but with some cute girls floating around in the city I imagine it can’t be that bad.
Hotel Miami (Mexico 449)
$14/night for private room with bath and air conditioning. Clean but run-down, like most hotels in the city. My sheets had to be at least 20 years old with several patches, and I tried not to think about how many thousands of people had sex on them. A bat dropped dead next to me here resulting in me getting five rabies vaccine shots (see below). Not recommended.
Asuncion On The Blog
I had a pretty scary experience when I woke up next to a dead bat in my hotel room.
I went to bed on Wednesday at midnight. I woke up around 4:15am with my hand touching something on my bed. I pushed it aside and settled into a new sleeping position. About four seconds later it hit me that THERE IS SOMETHING FURRY ON MY BED. Continue Reading
South America On A Shoestring Guidebook
This is the guidebook that I used in my six month trip in South America. The maps are excellent, the information is complete and thorough, and the reviews are accurate, which is why it's often called "the bible" by many travelers. The only problem is that everyone else has this book so if you are the type of person that wants to hit the isolated small towns you will be disappointed. My advice is to use this book for its maps and information on getting from city to city, but talk to the locals and other travelers for those isolated gems that Lonely Planet for some reason didn't find worthy to include.
Spanish For Beginners
My copy of this book is so beat up and weathered it's disintegrating before my eyes. I took it with me to South America because I loved how it was organized in a logical way that kept me motivated to keep studying. Lessons start short and easy and increase in complexity as you tackle frustrating readings that help take you to the next level. The only downside of this book is that it was originally published in 1957 so some of the vocabulary is very dated. Still, you'll be hard-pressed to find a modern equivalent of this book whose teachings approach the same quality. Last time I checked you can grab a used copy from Amazon for less than a dollar.
Hey Roosh. I’m from Asunción.
Day game here is similar to Argentina so I don’t think you’ll like it too much. That’s not counting the shopping malls. It’s easier there. Street game is tough though.
It’s a shame you didn’t get to experience the nightlife here. There’s a shit ton of stuff you can do. Hit me up if you are in the area again. You can see my email. See you around.5 years, 11 months ago
