A lot of you have asked me and my parents, when exactly I was planning on returning to the U.S. The truth is that for the longest time I didn't know. This week I finally decided. Next week I will be leaving for India/South Africa (after the World Cup unfortunately) and return to Paraguay at the end of July. My official leave date from Paraguay is Aug. 23rd. Then I plan to aprovechar (take advantage of) the fact that I'm already down here in South America and travel around the region. Over the course of 3 months I will be traveling from Paraguay to Northern Argentina to Bolivia to Peru to Brazil.
If you ever thought to yourself, ¨Wouldn't it be fun to visit Pooja in Latin America?¨ here's your chance! You don't even have to come all the way to Paraguay, you have your choice of several other lovely places in the South American continent. I will spend roughly 3 weeks in Bolivia until mid-end of September, 3 weeks in Peru, until mid-October, and a month in Brazil, until mid-end of November. I would love to have travel buddies, so if you're craving mountain climbing, hiking, world-class beaches, beautiful people, Spanish, the biggest rodents in the world, waterfalls, or just crazy adventures, you´re more than welcome to come join me!
