Some views of Ituzaingo

We’ve finally remembered to take some photos of Ituzaingo for the blog!

The town has about 20,000 people, and functions primarily as a resort town in the summer, with nice little beaches next to the Parana River.  While in the hotel, we had river views every morning. Now that we’re in the house, we live in the “company town” portion of the city. When the Yacyreta Dam was built, there was tremendous investment in the towns affected by the dam, including Ituzaingo. A solid half of the town is company housing, with different types of housing for different jobs. I’ll post photos of our house later–after we have a chance to fully move in. We’re still waiting for our items from the States, so we’re working out of whatever we brought down in our nine suitcases, plus whatever we’ve picked up here.

One of the many friendly dogs that wander the town. They belong to people--they just don't do leash laws or fences here. The dogs just seem to know when to go home at night for dinner.

One of the few "big box" stores in town. They sell large and small appliances, for the most part, as well as inflatable pools and cell phones.

The Simpsons are a big deal here. This Homer beer garden isn't open, but there is a little restaurant named Moe's down the street.
