It was the absolute most beautiful place to visit on earth in my life.
I was fortunate to do this with my amazing husband, Carlos Guerrero, as a kind of honey-moon.
The only thing that was not OK was that we hired a taxi driver, named Yoni Cabral, who works for
He brought us to a shop in Paraguay where an amazingly talented Brasilian guy wanted to sell us everything possible, most of it Chinese copies of original brands. Unfortunately we have not realized this until we got back to Santa Fé, and bought quite some staff there. Be aware! Don't trust these sellers. Paraguay supposed to be cheap for electronic devices but most of it seems to be Chinese copies that they sell on the actual original's price.
I found a law of consumer protection according to which I have the right to return products within 7 days ... but since I am a few thousand kilometers away now, I doubt I can do anything about this, let me know if you think I do .... in the meantime I decided to write about it so that other people do not fall in the same trap.
In general, Puerto Iguazú was a place where they tried to sell us all kind of staff all the time.
For now, I take this as a tsedaka (donation) I made to this Brasilian guy, who supposed to have a child, and hopefully spends my money on him... I can only hope that the devices we bought are good copies and will work somehow.
A good friend and healer of mine talked to me a few times about the coexistence of good and bad.
This was certainly an experience of that. On the most beautiful day of our life - of course we were so happy that forgot to think rationally, which we do quite rarely, anyway - so on the most most beautiful day of our life, we also experienced the biggest rip-off of our lives.
It certainly a reference to our ambivalent relationship with money and the material world. I can only hope that this relationship will somehow improve to my advantage from now on, and that this experience was the one and only to teach me modesty, and rationality.
I continue to trust the world, and aim to practice meditation for clear sight to be able to see the truth in the future, and somehow also keep my openness and continue be passionate.
