Where I stayed
Anyway, yesterday, Sunday, we headed to the Argentinian side of the falls, leaving the hotel at 8am. The hotel is basic but nicer than the hostels we've stayed in and one of the things we've had at a couple of the places we've stayed now is free thimble size cups of very sweet, strong black coffee - very nice. The Argentinian side brought us up close and personal to the falls. This might be an appropriate time to use the word awesome again - if I had pictures they wouldn't be enough and I could probably spend too many words and end up boring you. Whoever came up with scenes like this is a genius! I almost got the impression that this overwhelming power and grandeur was just God having a bit of fun. Later that day we boarded a speed boat which took us right under the falls and we got completely completely drenched - very cool - muito legal!
Our group are cool and we've enjoyed getting to know them better ... anyway ... I've got to try and get a good balance between too much writing and not enough - so I'll stop in a second. We're off to a ranch (hassienda) in Uraguay later this afternoon via another overnight bus. They're threatening to teach us how to round up cattle and such like, so this could be an interesting few days. We'll have barely any electricity or communication with the outside world so there won't be any blog updates for the next few days ... see you soon.
