Luque's Outskirts

There are an estimated 250,000 people living in Luque with a land mass of 220 square kilometers. There are many that live in the outer lying areas of Luque in houses like the one pictured below.

Some of the outer limits of Luque give the impression of being far away from civilization.

The people are extremely friendly for the most part and welcome visitors readily. They will just have you pull up a chair under the shade tree and share their terere with you.

The roads are either cobblestone or dirt, and one has to walk long distances to catch the nearest bus.

Life in the outskirts is VERY 'tranquilo'.
