One night after going to a fancy samba club, Anna asked if I would like an "anthropological experience." Not one to say no, I smiled and said "of course!" We then turned the corner into a dark alleyway where there were small bands playing music and eclectic groups of people listening and dancing. I was making small talk with a new friend when someone interrupted us and he opened up the drawstrings of his swimming trunks and sold a little tinfoil ball
The second half of my Brazilian adventure was at Iguassu Falls. Almost 2 miles wide and 250 feet high, they say they are the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. I donīt have many experiences to compare it to, but it was the closest thing I've come to living in a Lucky Charms commercial.
During this time I tagged along with three girls from London and countless traveling couples. Seeing these relationships has really started to tug on my heartstrings. I suppose it would have been impossible to have convinced me to travel with friend or boyfriend before this trip ... but if I do it again, itīs definitely a journey worth sharing.
