Good things about Autralia include beautiful landscapes (excluding the outback), beaches, and just generally being a spacious and sparse area. The population's pretty small for such a big land, so it's not hard to find a quiet and noise-free spot around here, especially in Melbourne.

I live in a nice country mainly because of the relaxed atmosphere and the tolerance. We also have nice architecture and landscapes too. I disagree a little with your second question. I don't think any countries in necessarily better than the other. They all have their own special quality.

Paraguay because it's off the beaten track and nobody knows anything about it here, except me :p

It's got over 300 species of bird life, the jesuit ruins, gran chaco, very closeby to the famous Iguazu falls, and the leafy green, and riverside capital of Asuncion, which has many ancient colonial buildings around the city, and there are many national parks and outdoor activities to keep you entertained.

To visit Paraguay is still to do something different as it is only in recent years that its borders have been opened to foreigners. Even experienced travellers to Latin America tend to leave out Paraguay. There aren't any package tourists nor cruising hordes here but foreigners are now made very welcome. Paraguay was once one of the largest countries in Latin America but a century of military disasters have now left it one of the smallest, least known and now one of the poorest in SA. But it's by no means the least interesting. ;) Landlocked right in the centre of Latin America, it is a strikingly beautiful country dominated by a fertile green landscape covered by red roads and rooftops. Paraguayans, who are almost all ‘Mestizo ’. (mixture of Spanish and Indian) are unfailingly charming and are never heard to raise their voices when things go wrong – and they go wrong most of the time!
Almost everyone speaks both Spanish and Guaraní and it is the only country in Latin America where the indigenous language holds equal status with Spanish. However, one of the delights of Paraguay is that English is hardly spoken. For volunteers who want to improve their spoken Spanish, therefore, Paraguay is ideal. There are a few placements where Spanish is not essential but a willingness to "have a go" at the language is vital if a volunteer really wants to become part of this charming society.

They are big meat-eaters and are usually astonished that anyone would want to be a vegetarian. The amount of beef they eat in this country is so immense that they’ve neglected trying to find a word for it (beef in Paraguay is just called ‘meat’). Lunch and dinner is beef stew, beef and pasta, beef and rice or tinned beef. :lol:

It is quite easy and cheap to follow a vegetarian diet there. Grain, especially maize, is used in most dishes and fresh fruit is plentiful. Cana, made from sugar cane, is the main alcoholic drink but all Paraguayans drink mate, a herb tea. Taken hot or cold from a guampa through a bombilla, everyone should try it once.

The great majority of Paraguayans are Roman Catholic and are very religious. However, it is a secular state - unfortunately, therefore, they don’t celebrate the numerous Feast Days that are normally associated with Catholic countries. Don’t worry, Paraguayans love to party and dance ( :lol: ) but it is important that volunteers respect codes of behaviour, both traditional and religious, that may be rather stricter than those in Britain.
There are more jaguars in Paraguay than tourists :lol: Everyone who visits Paraguay loves it, and it's also pretty cheap. Paraguay is very unknown and hidden, but beautiful! :hearts:

But one thing I have to add about Australia - our home made T.V. dramas aren't good compared to the Americans and the Brits. And when it comes to new music or product releases, we're usually behind most of the first world countries :o

Ermm, try repeating that when you've just spent a day out on Ayers Rock and returned home looking like a lobster :p
