Better late than never, Photo Friday is here again. Wacky weather and a crazy schedule will NOT impede our march to the ultimate goal of touring Paraguay through the lens of a cellphone camera. As always keep your keasters firmly planted in the tram at all times. I don’t want another incident. Lefty, that’s what I call him now, is doing fine and will be released soon.

Sit back and relax and enjoy the show. Don’t forget if you missed any of the past tours or you just want to go back and reminisce, hit the links to the Photo Friday category. Continue reading “Photo Friday”

YAY!! It’s Friday, uh, I mean Photo Friday. First, let me apologize to all of you who expect Photo Friday in your reader or email to savor with your morning cup of coffee. We have visitors (my in-laws) and it has been a little complicated.

Our car is in the shop again (2+ months so far). We have not installed the air conditioners yet in the new apartment (last week it was rainy and cool) and one of the fans locked up so I had to tear it apart and fix it. All of that came between me and getting you the premier cellphone camera tour of Paraguay. I will try my best to get back to the early schedule next week so your java isn’t lonely.

Now to the good stuff. If you’re following along on the map grab your china markers and get comfy. Continue reading “Photo Friday”

It’s back!!

Photo Friday has made its return after a several months respite. I have been feverishly fielding questions from all you addicts about the whereabouts of Photo Friday and the blog in general. Be at peace my brothers and sisters. I have a great line up in the cell-cam tour of Paraguay to settle those shaking hands. Just sit back, relax and feast your eyes on the following photo bonanza.

It’s Friday and you know what that means.

PHOTO FRIDAY!!!

Yeah baby. That’s when I take a few of my cell phone snapshots, churn out some witty banter for the captions and then share them with you as an impromptu tour of Paraguay Barba style. If you have missed some of stops on this tour click here. I really don’t want you to have an incomplete Photo Friday tour.

Now on to this week’s photos.

I forgot I had this gem.It slipped by undetected when I did the furlough edition. How many Taco Bells have you been to that "passionately" do anything? Has Taco Bell ever given you an "experience that help[ed] get a little more out of life"? I am totally missing that.

A local grocery store got these "fun size" Hershey candies. I have ranted about the fact that these are anything but "fun size" before. It's like eating shrimp without the anaphylactic shock. A lot of work getting the wrapper off for little payout. Compound that with the price here, $6.15. NOT FUN

This is yerba. The brand is Compañera, meaning companion. It's used like classmate or associate/friend. The cool thing is it doesn't matter your preference, this yerba has you covered. You like brunettes, got it. You like redheads, check. How about a blond, no problem. They even have an auburn hair represented. I hope you like the face because the choices stop at the hair.

Are there Split soft drinks in the US now? Look at the bottom right of the label and you'll see that familiar Pepsico logo. Pepsi released a complete line of Split here. There is cola, like-Sprite, like-7-up and several fruit flavors. MMM I love second string beverages.

We went to give blood for a friend in need. In the waiting room at the hospital was this 42" flat panel TV. It was off but I'm told it picks up 1 5/8 channels with that $2 rabbit ear antenna taped to the wall with medical dressing. This made me so sad that my blood had too many bad vibes, and I was turned away. Maybe not...

This is us. Yes. We are a family of super heroes. Think The Incredibles but more toward the end of the movie. A friend, Jamie Lee, did this pop art portrait for us. If you're interested I will include a link at the bottom of this post. He is a Londoner and fellow missionary here in Paraguay.

There you have it. This week’s tour of Paraguay from my cell cam. I hope you enjoyed the trip and didn’t get car sick in the tram. Have a great weekend. Here is Jamie Lee, aka Brit Art, on Facebook.

It’s back, y’all. I’ve been buzzing around town and picking up some good stuff for this week’s cellcam tour. So, form a single-file line and have your tickets ready to be stamped before entering the tram. If you bought a season pass, you can enter the tour at any point along the way by clicking here to see other posts in this series. Hang on to your hat. Here we go…

Have you ever been drinking a cool refreshing Coke only to look over and someone else had inadvertently picked up your bottle and put their big, slobbery mouth on it? How can you stop this travesty? Get a Coke with your name on it. Gah, so simple.

Paraguay is the land of postage taping deals together. Ladies you're gonna want to get in on this one. Everyone knows that only women use a blender so they packaged a flatiron for your hair with it. Make a smoothie and make your hair smoother.

This sign says not to try out the deodorants. Is that really a problem? Do people walk in some where and pit a new stick of stinkum for a test drive? I wasn't aware but then again I just buy my stinkum rather than steal it a pit at a time.

Recently a Senator got caught being, well, a Senator. These 20 were enough to vote him immunity. The people of Paraguay started this campaign. "We reserve the right to deny entry to these senators that voted no to remove the immunity. You are not welcome here." 3 weeks later the second vote was unanimous to remove immunity.

We went up to one of the Catholic churches this week. It's a beautiful location and Day of the Virgin is Sunday. There was lot of buzz going on in preparation. We notice a line forming and found that is was for confessional. Outside. In the open air. In plain view. I don't like confessing anyway but doing it in front of everyone is out of the question.

These are not Tic Tacs. They do not freshen your mouth and they do not come in a tiny plastic pill-like container. These are actually bootleg Oreos.

Today is a Photo Friday lite. There is one less pic this week. Sorry for that. My head has been in other places. The recording studio where I do the podcasts is in the shop. Yeah, that’s right. I use the plush back seat of my 19-year-old Mission Mobile as my audio crib. The motor went south and is being rebuilt. I am feverishly looking for another suitable place to record.Until then we have the pictorial tour of Paraguay via my cell cam.

From time to time we get a chicken from around the corner. They are rotisserie cooked over a wood fire. Lest you fear they are not the highest quality bird available there is the baked feather freshness gauge. Could your chicken feather survive hours slow roasting over hot wood coals?

Perhaps the tantalizingly fresh chicken has you hankering for a slab. you could hop in this Toyota "Joinus" and come on over. You would think a car named Joinus would be bigger.

The reason we had the fine, feathered friend for lunch was someone did Joinus. This is Niko the Wonder Dog getting a back massage from one of our little mission buddies. The dog is spoiled. He is 3 times her weight but is controlled by her little finger.

I like jerky. I like smoked and cured meats. I like wild game. I like wild game made into jerky or smoked and cured. However, I draw the line at "Wild Board." I can't begin to tell you how dry that is. How it splinters in your teeth. Not to mention I don't know whether to eat it or build with it.

I'm going to close out today with Spooky Tree. This thing looks like a Hollywood movie tree. I pass it all the timewalking and I'm always looking for a Hobbit or something to jump out of it. I beefed up the spooky factor with some editing.
