Dylan Gosling-Caceres the Rotary Club of Beaufort’s exchange student from Asuncion, Paraguay gave the Club a most interesting presentation about his small, land-locked country. He talked about: the history of Paraguay; the terrible but little-known wars that continue to shape the nation; Paraguay’s cultural heritage; and legends of the pre-colonial indigenous Guarani people (from which he is descended). He even brought a sample of Tereré (Paraguayan tea)—the nation’s drink of choice. He then spoke of his experiences and travels as an exchange student which has proven to be quite a successful cultural transition for a young man who had never seen the ocean or traveled outside Paraguay except for a brief visit to Argentina.
