On Ypacarai Lake

img_1232We took a pre-breakfast stroll along the public beach at San Bernadino. It’s the only time of day when the temperatures are conducive to any form of exercise.

Although a traditional summer and weekend destination for the over-heated of Asunción, Lake Ypacarai is a pretty polluted lake by our standards. But, some Paraguayans still seem eager to swim in it. And this photograph below reminds us that the proportion of the population below 15 years old is some 33%. As you walk around you see very few people of our age; except for some expat Germans and Americans.
