I hope ye are all keeping up with our Blog :-) We left Paraty on Sunday and arrived in Foz do Iguassu on Monday, after taking two bus journeys which took 21 hours in total. But it was all worth it!!
The Brazilian side gives a good overview and the Argentinian side gives you a closer look.
The waterfalls are actually over 200 waterfalls that all combine to give a thunderous roar as millions of tonnes of water fall over 80 meters into the ravine.
On Tuesday we crossed over to the Argentinian side and spent the day there. We thought the Argentinian side was more impressive and the national park was nicer. We got carried away with the photographs as you can see!
We did a nice trek through the national park and then headed back to the hotel.
The hotel had an all you can eat buffet so no need to say where we spent the rest of the evening!
We left Iguassu yesterday evening and took an overnight bus to Florianopolis. We met an American girl in the hostel in Paraty who recommended it. She went to Florianopolis for 2 nights and ended up staying for 2 weeks so from that we said we would check it out!
Will let ye know how it is in the next installment....
Till then, take care and keep in touch!
