Paraguayian pair – two from Paraguay

Did you know that “to google’ officially became a verb in 2006, when it was recognized by the Oxford English dictionary. And did you know that as well as more than 35 non-English languages that can be used for searches on Google, that it also has a klingon interface, just in case of a request from outer space? And did you know that you cannot create a folder called ‘con’ on a Windows computer (try it!!). And did you know that when Google assembled their first server, that the box that they used to hold the drives was made from Lego? And apparently, Bill Gates of Microsoft fame, whilst in school wrote a class scheduling program for the adminstrators. By design, this program was coded so that he ended up in classes with mostly female students!!!!
Two photos from the capital of Paraguay, Asuncion for the photos today. Surprisingly, both were taken in the city centre, and both show that the city has lost its former glory. About 6.8 million people live in Paraguay, with about one third of them living in Asuncion. Around 35% of the population are said to be poor, easily visible in the streets of the capital where you can see shacks and temporary shelters in the middle of the once grand avenues. Sadly for tourists, there is little of interest left to see, unless you have in interest in decay. Paraguay is one of the two landlocked countries in South America (the other is Bolivia). Both photos were taken with the Fuji X-E1 camera.
and another photo from the archives… a happy woman in Gambia.
