Day 35 (8th Oct) – Cataratas do Iguacu

16 10 2010

I don’t care what anyone says, the Argentinean side is far better.

After a typically lengthy border crossing we made it to Cataratas do Iguacu, or Igusasu falls to you and I. From the Brazilian side of the river you see more of the falls and get a feel for the size of them. However, from the Argentinean side you feel the power of the falls, as it’s possible to walk above and between the falls. It was from this side that I took a twelve minute boat ride into/ under a couple of the water falls, got very wet and swallowed some river water..nice!

Unfortunately we were enjoying the falls so much we didn’t have time to fit it all in before closing time and therefore missed parts… I think it’s a good reason to return to South America 🙂

To console ourselves after missing part of the falls, and since we were in Argentina, we decided to have two large slabs of Argentinean beef and a cracking bottle of red wine. All was soon forgotten.

Jez, you’ve swallowed stagnant Port Harcourt pool water and survived, that river water was probably Evian in comparison!

Also, the picture of you sat in the boat… Whilst it looks like you’re having a good time, you should have accompanied it with the other one where (and I’m sure it was just a simple case of a pooly/well timed photo (whichever way you want to look at it)) you look utterly utterly miserable. There’s also one more that I couldn’t quite tell if it was you or some South American gringo… Turns out it was you afterall.

Take care.
