    Recuerdos de Ypacara

    Ypacara
    Ypacaraí is a town in the Central Department of Paraguay on Lake Ypacarai. On the road system, it is located between Asunción and Caacupé. In 2004, the village had a population of 30,150, and is 64.1 m above sea level. Notable agricultural crops of the area include tobacco and cotton. Lake Ypacaraí is popular with tourists and locals in the landlocked nation of Paraguay.

    Footballer Carlos Gamarra is from Ypacaraí.


     


    According to a legend, a man walked into a despensa and asked for water (Y in Guaraní). The pa suffix in guaraní suggests that it is a question. So, put together the phrase Ypakarai means "Water sir?" Supposedly the question posed by the despensa owner was somewhat rude.

    Another meaning of the city name is from the two words, "ypa" meaning lake and "karai" meaning Lord or blessed. Thus we have the Lord's Lake or Blessed Lake.
