A cold spring rain blows through the high-rise canyons, making Luiz Eduardo Soares feel even farther from Rio de Janeiro. Shoulders hunched in his leather jacket, the bearded 46-year-old Brazilian walks the streets hunting for an apartment, rebuilding his life in the anonymity of exile.

Gen. Alfredo Stroessner, Paraguay's unshakable dictator for a third of a century, flew into exile Sunday from the airport that bears his name, two days after he tumbled from power in a military coup staged by his right-hand man. Hundreds of people cheered and chanted "Long live free Paraguay!" as Stroessner, showing little emotion, boarded a Paraguayan Airlines Boeing 707 for Brazil. His departure at 3:49 p.m. was the culmination of three tumultuous days for this nation of 3.1 million people.
