For dinner, we treated ourselves to a feast fit for a king at a local churascaria called Rainir. It was delicious! Oh yes, the live entertainment showcasing a variety of Latin American song and dance was pretty impressive as well.
Sunday March 27, 2005 Foz do Iguaçu We were amazed by the previous day's visitation to Iguaçu, but this venture was far more impressive. Early in the day, we wandered into the Argentinean side of the falls. It was such a breathtaking sensation on the threshold of such extraordinary earthly creation (think Grand Canyon). As we made our way to the lower area, we hopped on board a jet to enter the Devil's Throat. Let me just say that as the boat immersed itself into the fall's most massive point, I thought I had momentarily drowned. I'd hadn't felt such a frightening yet exhilarating experience in a while (think bungee)! Of course, we had to dry ourselves off and then walked some more amongst some other area of the park. In the evening, we went to a local restaurant. After dinner, I called home to check in and discovered everyone was over my parents' house for Easter Sunday. I think this was the first moment I'd felt a bit homesick
Monday March 28, 2005 Foz do Iguaçu, Brasil On our last day in Foz de Iguaçu we had a jam packed day. We started off with a shopping adventure in Paraguay (think los callejones in Downtown L.A.). Brenda and I purchased some clothes (like these shopping monsters needed anymore) and perfume (as if our baggage wasn't heavy enough). Anyway, back in Argentina, we took for a Jungle Tour. We weren't sure exactly what the tour would consist of but we happily (and noisily) hopped on board only to be told to be quite by another tourist. Along the scenic route, we stopped by and did some minor rock climbing (it was more like ascending) and then we did a zip-line run though the trees. Later on, we had dinner at the hotel and had our Easter Gift exchange one day late.
