Paraguay

The city of the east, or Ciudad del Este, is Paraguay’s second biggest and a major shopping attraction for Brazilians and Argentines. Paraguay imposes almost no import tax or duties on electronic goods, so it’s possible to buy name brand electronics at just a little more than the price you’d pay in the USA. The city is just over the ‘friendship bridge’ from Foz do Iguaçu. I took a walk over to buy a camera, and was amazed at how many large shopping centers there were.
