on January 2, we visited sites around Filadelfia including some battlefields and fortification remnants from the Chaco War in the 1930s. Driving in a great circle on dirt roads, we also encountered a good deal of wildlife.
We had lunch at the Boqueron Hotel in Neuland and continued traveling around the countryside spotting bottle trees and a variety of wildlife, including Peccaries , a rare Red Iguana , a flock of Rheas crossing a field,
a Jabiru stork (third largest wingspan of any bird after the Condor and the Great Albatross) ,
and assorted other birds.
We returned to the Hotel Florida for a refreshing swim and a very good sleep.
