Photographer's Note

I traveled to the east of Paraguay this week. It was a short trip, only three days but I am really happy anyway.

I enjoy a lot leaving the office and the phones and go along the routes to see the green fields and forrests.

As you approach the city border with Brazil Ciudad del Este, it is possible to verify that people also speak portuguese or at least speak portuñol which is a combination of spanish and portuguese.

Other feature of this part of Paraguay is the color of the land. It turns red. This can be seen on the walls of the houses which with time turn red by the influence of the strong color of the land.

We call this land "tierra colorada".

In Yguazu town, we were searching land for a new tower and we found a little house. While talking with the owner (the father of the baby) in portuguese, his name was "Arantes", (same as Pele) the baby appeared with tons of curiosity to see these strangers arriving home. It was certainly something new and unknown.

The baby remained at the door which were almost completely closed as we were strangers and therefore untrusted people.

I liked the scene, the red colors, the two subjects...right there. I couldnt resist to photograph them. Please notice the red tone of the white cat.

Hope you like it.
