Sandwiched between Brazil and Argentina, Paraguay has one of the fastest growing economies in South America. With growth comes 1wealth. And with wealth comes 2trash. Just outside the capital city of Asuncion is the 3slum of Cateura, built on the 4banks of a river polluted by the chemicals and 5sewage deposited daily in the massive 6landfill that dominates the area.
Why do people choose to live in places like these – places that 7stink and are regularly 8flooded? The answer is simple. The price of land in Paraguay is so high, this 9rubbish dump is all that is left to them.
