Yesterday we visited the Brazilian side of the falls. We booked a private tour through the hotel and we were picked up at the hotel by Gisela, the guide, and a driver, Walter, at 9 a.m. The weather was superb, clear and sunny.

The journey from Sao Paulo to Foz do Iguacu took about 15 hours. Most of which we slept, but the bus driver put the air conditioning so low that it was very cold the whole night. We should have listened to Marie and Phil and take our sleeping bags with us on the bus, well well... The scenery we were passing was very different to what we saw around the coast between Rio and Sao Paulo. No more amazing hills, mountains an sea ...
