The Paraguayan Ice Cube - Encarnacion, Paraguay
This is how ice cubes (ice cylinders? ice bags?) are made throughout Paraguay (well, at least in Encarnacion and throughout our boat ride up the Rio Paraguay)...Thin cylindrical plastic bags are filled with water, frozen and stored. When ice is needed, they are pulled out, broken and the plastic is taken away...sometimes. When you get a drink that's made with the Paraguayan ice cube, look close and be aware of plastic bag fragments in your drink.
