ENCARNACION AND THE MISSIONES RUINS
Everyone on the bus got off at the immigracion on the Argentine side, people were running out of the bus to be ahead of the queue, i just followed them, it took no more than 5 minutes for me to be processed, then boarded the same bus which luckily was still there. It was quite full and tried to get on it at the back door, a group of women were blocking the way up so i had to force myself at the door, polite words such as desculpe and por favor, did not work so i forced myself in and said excuse me , thank you! after, I heard someone whispering "mochilero". Those women were a bit rude, they wanted to be right out near the door to be the first to disembark at the other end but blocking the way for everyone else. We crossed the bridge and when we got to the Paraguay side true enough people started running for immigracion office, they are trying to make sure they get the same bus as it does not wait for anyone, but another bus come every 10 minutes or even less! anyway It took a good 10 minutes to
process me, not in a rush as the bus left already anyway, she photocopied my visa then asked me how long I am staying and where, then stamped me in, she used the exit stamp instead of entry stamp so she hand wrote entrada and initialled it. Then soon as I am done bus came and we are on our way to Encarnacion, i asked a lady if the last stop is the bus terminal, she said no but the guy sat next to her will tell me when to get off as she got off the bus ahead of us. the nice man talked to me for a bit but had a hard time understanding him, the driver yelled "terminal" so i got off and found El germano hostel, and as LP said it really is nice and clean, very neat, I opted for a single room no toilet for $8 the toilet inclusive room is $10.
