The latest Partners of the Americas blog included this piece about Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Brendan Hughes and Ronaldo a student in the community of Yhu. Ronaldo was chosen as a Youth Ambassador and visited Montana. He missed Kansas but we are still pleased with the success and the connection between the Peace Corps, Partners and Paraguay.

Charleville, Cork Ireland is having a weekend celebration (Sept. 19,20) of Eliza Lynch. So why is this on the Kansas-Paraguay blog? Because she became the “Queen of Paraguay.” It is a great story. So book now for an early fall trip to lovely Ireland. Then you could drop down to Paraguay.

Our partner country is making more headlines for its Women’s World Cup team. Wait a minute, the headline writer got the wrong country. Don’t let that fool you. It really is about Paraguay. This article is from north of the border. I don’t know if that explains naming the wrong country in the title.
I haven’t seen the team but they do seem to be impressive. Perhaps they could play a friendly in Kansas City against the US Women’s team.
