The British Ambassador to Paraguay, Ramin Navai, participated in the Toyo (Mud) Festival, one of the most fun and authentic festivals in the country that takes place in the town of Nueva Lundres, in the province of Caguazu. The event took place last Sunday afternoon.
Through his social networks, the diplomat uploaded a video of him being quite muddy enjoying his time with guests and residents in the area. “Great experience with Paraguay London! “Thank you, New London, for having me today,” Navay said.

“Their celebrations are the best. Here they are engaged in the Togo party.” Far from elegant suits and shoes, as is common for occasions, the ambassador chose more comfortable clothes, Bermuda shorts, sneakers and a hat.
Amid the uproar of the people, whose joy was expressed by the sound of the Paraguayan dance, the British envoy rolled into the mud. The visit of diplomat Ramin Navai included, first, his assistance in a traditional bullfight, where he gave some speeches accompanied by Mayor Manolo Solis, and then other activities.

Founded in the new community of London with English and Australian immigrants, this bizarre festival originated more than 35 years ago, when a group of area residents decided to dance in the rain before the booth was suspended due to bad weather.
Year after year, the traditional “Togo Festival” brings together hundreds of Kagwazu and even other parts of the country, and those who come to it must be prepared to be polluted with mud.
The event is held annually in the city’s main square, where the tap trucks are responsible for setting the atmosphere for the festival which takes place during the day and culminates in the evening with a music festival. The shepherd is celebrated in honor of the baby Jesus.
