Iguazu Falls, Argentina
I think that no matter what words I use or photos I take, they would not do justice to Iguazu falls justice. The waterfalls were simply breathtaking from various angles. I will let my photos do most of the talking and hopefully how extraordinary it is will have been captured. Three main trails lead you to different views and the lower circuit brings you to point where you can feel the spray of water as you stand close but also get a boat out. We got the boat and my goodness I am glad.
Woah, a nice wee jolly along side them to take pictures and then the fun begins. It's cameras away time. The boat revs up and takes you so close to them that the surges of water hitting your face makes it hard to see but so exhilarating. We got to do this a couple of times from various angles and were completely soaked by end of it. But woah. It was amazing.
It's hard to even describe the whole experience but it was definitely worth it. Possum looking creatures coming up to you when siting; amazing black and yellow butterflies; and all different shapes and sizes of lizards. Incredible. One end of trail felt like a queue at a theme park which in laughter at self wanting all the foreigners to go away haha. What are we?
We took a wee train to the top and the view was just incredible. This is where you could see just how high and powerful they are. Magical.
It was perfect timing to have completed everything as there was a storm brewing so by the time we got back to bus, the wind was pretty strong. "Perfect timing" we exclaimed again as it seemed like the day was just going like clockwork. From the time in the morning to where Niamh and I got on the same bus to arriving at a perfect time at certain spots.
Well the afternoon called for a siesta, and with no wifi and the storm going on it felt like am opportunity that couldn't be missed. I had a great nap and then had some online catch up before my Irish friend and I went for dinner. Steak number two and onion risotto at .......it was yummy, the steak was delicious. Good chats and them I took a wander around the town before returning to hostel to set plan for tomorrow, Paraguay here I come.
