Eduardo had a long trip in previous days driving a German colleague around the area and had driven for over a thousand km. It was hard and kind of him to drive another trip back home to Asuncion. I had thought about helping him out on the driving but I was not confident in driving at night in the highway of a country that I have no knowledge about. In fact, the tired Eduardo could keep 80km/hour and crossed the opposite lane to keep the speed (there was only one lane for each direction and were many heavy trucks blocking long the way. That needed passing). He also paid for a buffet dinner where we had a better taste of cuppee. Meat made here was like in Brazil and Argentine: too much salt and done. The dinner was really good that we tried the sopa, which was like a cake made by maze. We also bought some beer in alcohol store and Eduardo enjoyed the beer drive withus and I could use the bottle opener with my ring, that I learnt from Richard in Rio de Janeiro.

We also mentioned our experience with the Paraguay immigration, Eduardo was upset about his country government official and he wanted to do something about it. On the drive he emailed to a lawyer friend on immigration matters. It was kind of him to speak up when facing injustice. We finally arrived his home in Asuncion.
