... and activity we left the park with our guide, Bea, taking photos of cars parked along the road as the carparks were so full. Apparently it is Carnival week in Brazil was giving the entire population an excuse to visit the falls! Why, you may ask, do they come to Argentina when they have their own side with panoramic views. In a word: exchange rate. The peso rate makes everything very inexpensive so they make a day of it, eat out and fill up ...
... The next day, which was yesterday, we sat by the pool in the morning (got a little burned) and then went to the airport for our flight to Foz do Iguazu. That is where we are now. We had a very exciting day today! We were met by our driver, Silvano, at 9 o'clock this morning. He drove us to the National park that surrounds the waterfalls.

... We were the lucky ones. 3 of the 5 tents leaked, 2 quite badly. Phew!!! After another ordinary breakfast of fruit, white bread and cake, typical For Brazil, we were held ransom by the weather. It rained and rained and rained for hours. All day in fact, only letting up at 4pm. Needless to say, the day was a write off.
