Paraguay - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you like the outdoors? Many people do. Many people like to be outside among green grass and green trees. Others like to be in a faraway place, away from other people. For many people, the outdoors is a magical place. Some people, of course, don't like to be outside. Some people think it's scary.
 
2     There's a place, a really big place, that is very far away from cities or towns. This place is full of trees, grass, rivers, and animals. It is a very pretty place, but not everyone likes it. In fact, a group of people from Canada once called it a "green hell." This place is called the Chaco, and it is in Paraguay.
 
3     Paraguay is a country in South America. It is bordered by Bolivia, Brazil, and Argentina. It is a landlocked country. That means that no part of Paraguay touches an ocean or a sea. It is completely surrounded by land. Paraguay is a mysterious place. One famous writer said, "Paraguay is nowhere and famous for nothing." The writer wasn't correct. There are many wonderful places in Paraguay.
