FORMOSA TO CHACO: “SLIGHT” CHANGES IN REALITIES IN LESS THAN A WEEK

changes-in-realities

How many strangers and strange events can you fit into a week? Well, A LOT. On my way through the Argentinian provinces of Formosa and Chaco, I’ve Couchsurfed with a guy working for Coca-Cola (with whom we went on a motorboat ride and wakeboarding on the Río Paraguay), gone on a pilgrimage with cycling pilgrims (on the longest Vía Crucis in the world), spent the night at the office of a sports field (with the local mayor bringing me a mattress and a fan in the evening), slept in the abandoned horse-shed of a local gaucho and his family (whose shower was a bucket of water on a floor of bricks), and finally (to my very big surprise) found a Belgian nun in the Argentinian Chaco (thanks to whom I’ve visited a daycare for street kids). Here’s these changes in realities in pictures. More about these people coming up when I have a bit more time to write. As for now, I just want to share with you at least a slice of this eventful week…
