Jesús de Tavarangüé, Paraguay

[nggallery id=174]

After walking around in the Trinidad in the morning, we hitched a local’s car to Jesús de Tavarangüé.  On our way there we talked with the local who speaks a special type of Spanish mixed with Guarani.  He was very happy to see us and we spoke a lot but little did we understood each other.  Eventually we got to the gate of the ruins and with his guidance we found the ticket booth.

We walked along with a group of Japanese tourist around the ruins.  Since the panoramic view tower was too small for a lot of people,  as soon as those Japanese tourists went away, we tried to go up to the tower for a panoramic view, but it was locked.  Since this is an important part of this museum, we wonder why the access is locked.  Then we found out that the guy who has the key is away at the lunch, and he won’t return in 2 hours.  The doors people lied and said that if we buy their tour or if we are with a tour then we will have access – nope, I saw another tour group and they also can’t get the key going up to the tower.

Those doors people are very unprofessional.  They keep telling me to wait and I finally gave up on waiting since we also have other plans later that day.  From this side the compound looked quite big (well, it’s definitely bigger than the missions in San Antonio, if you know what I’m talking about)
