Thanks to Chris's excellent choosing, we had a gorgeous hostel that was close to the bus station in Puerto de Iguazu. It also had a small swimming pool that we were both thankful for because it was HOT!
We decided to visit the falls that afternoon and just spend the one night on the Argentinian side. So after a quick change and bite to …
... It was a new country for me which was exciting, and meant that I have now crossed every border that I planned on crossing in South America this time around :)
Our bus dropped us off right at the entry to the Brazilian side of the falls, where we had out first dilemma with trying to communicate in Portuguese. Luckily, everyone here spoke English, even more so than Spanish so it made communicating a little easier. When we arrived ...
... Cape Verde and the islands "discovered" by Columbus, which happened to be Central America. Setting out that the land to the east would belong to Portugal and the west to Spain. The interesting thing is that they set the line apart before South America was "discovered" so they drew the line in what they thought was the Atlantic Ocean, effectively protecting Portugal's African colonies. It was only later when South America was discovered that the line was already set in ...
... then out of nowhere there is a large sinkhole that takes the entire rivers flow and shoots it down into the chasm below. The amount of water is staggering, we approach the edge and all you can see is mist below the falls from so much pulverized water. We sit in awe for a while just watching before taking a ton of pictures and heading back. The walk back is as wonderful as the walk-in, the butterflies frolic around us as we make our way back to the river bank.

After completing the final trail and feeling a bit 'waterfalled' out (as Anj put it), we headed back to the hostel to make some pasta (again!) and finish our previous blog entry.

TravelPod Member ReviewsIguassu Guest House Foz de Iguacu
It was a lovely hostel. It was a bit quiet when I was there, but dorms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The staff was nice and really helpful with navagating the buses and trips to the attractions. Breakfast was standard for Brazil. Small book exchange, lots of travel information. I would stay here again for sure.
