17th Nov

Got woken up at 3am to have our tickets checked, which wasn't great as we'd not had much sleep and had only just about dropped off. Managed to sleep on & off until about 9am.  We then watched a Brazilian movie in portugese with spanish subtitles (set on Ipanema beach in Rio) and were surprised that we managed to follow what was going on,  We think it was a Romeo and Juliet story involving guns and drugs and a really messed up family.  We arrived in Foz at 11.30am, caught a couple of buses (where we met a Dutch chap called Case) to the Supernova Hostel that had a pool that wasn't finished yet and a mini Nega (rottweiler puppy).  We went shopping and cooked scrambled eggs for lunch and then chilled out in our room.  Dinner was tuna pasta with tomato sauce followed by a movie Ice Age 3.

Up for breakfast at 8am, caught the bus to the National Park for the falls.  We were warned on the bus and via several signs not to feed the local animals or eat in front of them as they can get aggressive where food is concerned.  No one warned us that they would pose for a photo and then run around behind you, leap up your leg and rip open the bag you had your lunch in spilling your egg sandwiches, cake, etc on the floor.  These guys may be fast, but they are also stupid, choosing to chew on Cat's toilet roll rather than cake and sandwiches. However, they chose the wrong women's toilet roll to chew and received a swift kick to remind them whose toilet roll it was!  We managed to rescue our cake and apple, but lost the sandwiches.  However, the falls were beautiful and after several hundred photos and a couple of hours later we were heading back into town.

In the afternoon, we headed to Itapu dam (supposedly the largest in the world), where we had a panoramic tour of the dam for an hour or so and then returned to the hostel for an ice cream and omelette for dinner  Watched two movies (Surf's up & Nacho Libre) and then to sleep.
