The Ogaguasu gets a facelift!
Of course I was there all week painting away...
From Sept. 26-29 the Ogaguasu (my community center) held its fist ever Arts and Crafts Expo. The "Expo Feria" was a four day event filled with great arts and crafts from Mboiy and surrounding barrios, traditional Paraguayan food, music, and dance.
Opening night of the Expo. Don Rogelio (my counterpart's husband/ my host dad) gave a great speech welcoming the community and officially opening the doors of the Ogaguasu.
Two silver jewelers from Luque (near the capital city Asuncion) came to show/ sell their amazing work. These women are members of Instituto Paraguayo de Artesania (IPA), which works to promote art and culture here in Paraguay.
