In this June 1, 2013 photo, Paraguayans returning from shopping in Clorinda, Argentina carry boxes and bags across the international bridge over the Pilcomayo River into the town of Nanawa, Paraguay. Shoppers who turn to the street rather than the banks to swap their dollars are getting a bonanza of extra Argentine pesos and can shop much more cheaply than back at home due to Argentina's currency controls and black market for US dollars. Taking advantage of the guarani’s newfound strength, Paraguayans are rolling by the thousands into the Argentine frontier city of Clorinda to do their shopping. (AP Photo/Jorge Saenz)
