... the Devil's Throat. The waterfalls at Iguaçu/Iguazú are in two layers in many places, with a higher set above a particularly hard layer of rock (presumably).

These were inclusive of and also limited to the stray dogs and the functionality of the toilet flush in our hostel. Much to Rach's amusement the local dogs seemed to enjoy spending time in and around my shins and feet. Perhaps the laughter would have been mine if a dog had bitten her, particularly as she hadn't had her rabies jabs. On further evaluation, the ...
