  • The positive: good collection of works of art the bad: good air conditioning there is making it difficult to travel

  • I arrived in Asuncion on Sunday for the first time, 17/07, and one of the rides that I have programmed me to do was the visit to the Museum of clay. The first surprise was that the Museum does not open on Sundays! Or Mondays, so, today, Tuesday, 19/07, consulted this page, where is the information that the Museum would be open. Bad surprise! Upon arriving at the Museum, it is closed for cleaning! I'm leaving, disappointed.
