This street is in Santa Rosa, a small neighborhood in Ascunción, Paraguay. It is very close to the big working class district Barrio Obrero and located between the city, the river and the garbage dump. Despite its central location, Santa Rosa feels like the countryside. It is a rather small neighborhood with many children and young people and a lot of favelas, but things have been getting better recently. There seems to be an urge to accomplish something, culturally and economically. I moved to Ascunción a few years ago and this city still never ceases to fascinate me.
